Indoor Positioning & Tracking in Industrial Areas

A Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) provides location-relevant data for operators, making the logistics process faster and smoother. An RTLS can not only help with productivity enhancement, but also with real-time decision support and the identification of hidden costs.

Application Scenarios

Indoor positioning in industry and logistics enables the tracking of goods and employees in real time, location- and time-related analyses and indoor navigation. Among the most important benefits of such applications are reduced search times, process optimization, increased efficiency and greater safety for employees.

  • Evacuation of employees in an emergency

Technical Implementation

For a tracking solution in industry and logistics, several tracking technologies are available. 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. The use of RFID is suitable for a point-specific object identification with high unit numbers.

Beacons with Bluetooth 4.0 are usually used for indoor navigation on company premises. 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.
