Redpoint Positioning Launches Breakthrough RTLS Platform with High-Precision Location Accuracy
Patented Real Time Location Services Solution Breaks the Performance-cost Barrier of Existing Ultra Wideband-based Products
By: Redpoint Positioning Corp.
RTLS is one of the fastest growing technology markets, forecasted by IndustryARC to reach $7 billion by 2020, for tracking the location of assets and people, both outdoors and indoors. RTLS is being adopted widely in a number of industries including construction, healthcare, retail, oil and gas and others. But the usage of RTLS has been traditionally limited by the high cost of gaining high location accuracy. Past RTLS solutions that achieved high precision of less than one meter, were costly to deploy or required extensive infrastructure. Indoor location systems such as beacons are gaining popularity due to their low cost, but offer poor accuracy and tracking performance.
Redpoint RTLS unique features include:
· - Server-less navigation, with positioning algorithm embedded inside RTLS tag, enabling affordable GPS-like indoor navigation.
· - Truly wireless UWB mesh-network infrastructure, which, unlike traditional UWB RTLS, does not require data cabling between the network nodes for time synchronization, dramatically driving down the cost of the infrastructure and deployment.
· - Patented UWB+BLE mode where the system can locate both UWB and BLE tags and enable unique mobile beacon functionality.
Redpoint’s RTLS platform is currently successfully deployed at a multitude of pilot installations and will be shown publicly for the first time at RFID Live! 2015, Booth #842, in San Diego.
