About The Customer
Jaguar Land Rover Limited is a British multinational automotive company headquartered in Whitley, Coventry, United Kingdom, and a subsidiary of Indian automaker Tata Motors. Its principal activity is the design, development, manufacture and sale of vehicl
The Challenge

At Jaguar Land Rover, vehicles physically move around the facility for testing, configuration setting, rework and rectification, leading to a longer search time to get each vehicle to its next process facility. The main goal is to minimize the vehicles' dwell time between end of line and the delivery chain which was previously a manually intensive process. Jaguar Land Rover's goal was to build on the success of an earlier RFID project and improve the efficiency of delivering vehicles to meet dealer orders.

The Solution

Zebra's Vehicle Tracking and Management System (VTMS) expanded Jaguar Land Rover's existing real-time locating system (RTLS) implemented for the material replenishment system to support the new vehicle tracking management system. At about 50 key points, Zebra WherePort exciters send messages to the tags to send out a signal to 1 of 130 wireless Zebra WhereLAN location sensors, which record the exact time a tag is passing a specific location.
