RTLS Technologies
(Real Time Locating System)

Real-time localization

Locating goods, vehicles or people in real time and with due accuracy becomes more important every day to optimize search times, reduce warehouse costs, optimize processes and for worker safety. Based on the expected level of accuracy, the environment, the type of goods, we will recommend the most suitable technology for your specific need. Our goal is to increase the operator’s well-being and productivity at work so that you can improve your performance and continue to do your best work.

Beacon Technology

Beacons are low-frequency radio transmitters which, applied to the goods to be tracked, allow these goods to be located with an accuracy ranging from 2m to 50cm. There are various communication methods between Tag Beacons and Anchors (fixed antennas/gateways) and the choice of the most appropriate technology depends on the environment, the materials to be located etc… AoA (angle of arrival), Wirepas Mesh, Bluetooth Low Energy. Beacon technology is optimal for indoor localizations but can also be used outdoors if the areas are not too large.

Ultra Wide Band Technology

Ultra Wide Band is the localization technology that offers the highest level of accuracy (a few centimeters). Also in this case, each asset that you wish to track must be “tagged” with a UWB Tag which will communicate with the fixed antennas that will have been previously applied to the wall to cover the environments in which you wish to locate it. This technology uses ToF (time of flight) to calculate the position of the items which can communicate with the antennas up to 1,000 times per second. It is a technology that can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Lidar Technology

Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) technology is used in many fields for measurement in indoor and outdoor environments. In a solution that aims to locate an asset, the Lidar sensor will be installed on the vehicle (forklift) used for movement.
The combined acquisition of the position of the vehicle thanks to the Lidar sensor and the recognition of the package that is moving allows millimetric accuracy to be achieved. Lidar technology is also used on both forklifts and AMRs as anti-collision or driving or load verification technology.

GPS e RTK Technologies

The GPS (Global Positioning System) system allows you to locate entities on the Earth’s surface by referring to the position of satellites orbiting the Earth. It is therefore a technology that can only be used outdoors. Its accuracy varies from 3 to 5 m. To improve the accuracy of GPS technology, RTK GPS (Real-time kinematic Global Positioning System) is often used, which consists of installing a fixed reference station (antenna) usually positioned on the roof of the company overlooking the area. to monitor. Thanks to real-time data processing and their immediate transmission to the rover (receiver), it offers centimeter accuracy.
