Hardware for Indoor Positioning
Although indoor positioning is mostly characterized by software, several hardware components are necessary for project realization. We will be presenting the most important hardware types that are used for each positioning method.
infsoft Locator Nodes are a special hardware for analysis and tracking. They enable the localization (server-based) of all mobile devices (i.e. smartphones), WiFi-enabled devices and Bluetooth beacons (attached to people/goods) inside a building without an app, with an accuracy under 5 meters.
infsoft Locator Tags are small WiFi and BLE tags which enable capturing and tracking objects and people indoors. They work with server-based installations. In contrast to Locator Nodes, Locator Tags are primarily developed for large areas where only a few objects should be captured.
Indoor tracking in industrial environments often requires very precise localization. For this purpose we offer solutions based on the short-range radio technology Ultra-wideband (UWB). It does not work with consumer standards such as WiFi and BLE but offers an accuracy of less than 30 cm.
