Client-Based Positioning with Beacons

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.

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. Bluetooth Low Energy in combination with infsoft Locator Beacons and Ultra-wideband (UWB) are technologies that are most frequently used in industrial environments.
