infsoft Locator Nodes – RTLS Made Easy

Depending on your use case and on-site requirements, three different infsoft Locator Nodes are available that can be used in a tracking project.
You can select a hardware below to get to know more about it – including technical features, use cases, and more!

infsoft Locator Node 1400

infsoft Locator Nodes 1400 can receive Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals from mobile transmitters. This enables positioning of Wi-Fi tags and beacons which can be attached to objects or carried by people, as well as the localization of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capable mobile devices. In addition, a back channel can be used for bidirectional information exchange between infsoft Locator Nodes 1400 and Bluetooth transmitters such as infsoft E-Ink Display Beacons.

The integration into the infsoft LocAware platform® enables a wide range of application scenarios. These include tracking solutions, analysis functionalities and process automation.

In order to determine the position of an asset or a person, the Locator Node 1400 collects the data it receives from a transmitter and forwards the information to the infsoft LocAware platform®. This is where the data is processed and the location of the transmitter is determined. Moreover, a link to systems from third-party providers such as Cisco (CMX, DNA Spaces, MSE, Meraki), HP Aruba or Xirrus is possible.

Use Cases for infsoft Locator Nodes 1400

infsoft Locator Nodes 1400 allow the realization of a wide range of use cases in many different industries. Here are a few examples:

infsoft Locator Node AoA 1200

Angle of Arrival (AoA) is an emerging technology that indicates the direction of the signal sources and can be used for tracking assets as well as for indoor positioning and wayfinding. infsoft Locator Nodes AoA use Angle of Arrival for real-time measurement of the direction of a radio signal emitted by a mobile 2.4 GHz transmitter (beacon). Based on the angle and signal strength determined, it is possible to calculate the position of an object equipped with such transmitter with an accuracy of 1 to 3 meters. This opens up opportunities for numerous use cases and makes server-based BLE solutions a favorable alternative to cost-intensive Ultra-wideband (UWB) applications – as long as no centimeter accuracy is required.

In addition to the angle measurement, Locator Nodes AoA provide the full range of functions of the infsoft Locator Nodes 1100.

Use Cases for infsoft Locator Nodes AoA 1200

infsoft Locator Nodes AoA are designed to be incorporated into special Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) projects. Get to know some examples:

infsoft Locator Node 1100

infsoft Locator Nodes 1100 are modular hardware components that can be used in a variety of applications.
Integrated into the infsoft LocAware platform®, the Locator Nodes allow a comprehensive detection of different device types, enabled through the modular system with different sensors.

This results in flexible application possibilities: By using consumer standards such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), mobile devices, Wi-Fi-enabled devices and beacons attached to persons / objects can be located. Furthermore, high-precision solutions in the industrial environment based on Ultra-wideband (UWB) can also be implemented with infsoft Locator Nodes. Connecting an RFID reader or a GPS unit allows additional complementary sensors to be used.

The Locator Nodes capture the data they receive from the sender (i.e. smartphone or beacon) and forward them to the infsoft LocAware platform®, which processes the data. Using the various tools then allows to view positions, analyze movements, or use location-based services. An integration with third-party systems such as Cisco (CMX, DNA Spaces, MSE, Meraki), HP Aruba or Xirrus is also possible.

In addition to positioning, infsoft Locator Nodes are also able to communicate with Bluetooth devices via back channel, allowing bidirectional exchange of information.
