For the implementation of a tracking solution, different tracking technologies can be applied depending on the particular use case. Factors that determine which technology is best suited in a particular application are the number of assets to be tracked, precision requirements and how fast the assets move. Ultra-wideband (UWB) and Bluetooth Low Energy using Angle of Arrival are technologies that are frequently used in industrial environments because they enable tracking sub-meter positioning accuracy when there is a direct line of sight.
For indoor navigation solutions, beacons are the most commonly applied technology. Easy installation and a long battery life are major advantages of this technology. With a smartphone app, employees can easily navigate to their desired destination and view their current position on a digital map.
