Ultra-wideband technology can save lives by generating alerts if occupants are detected inside parked cars.
Participants in an ING Bank and NXP pilot are making peer-to-peer payments by pointing Samsung phones within meters of each other and accepting the transaction on an app.
The company plans to offer more real-time location technologies as part of its track-and-trace solutions, leveraging Tracktio's active systems that include BLE, UWB and LoRa, to gain real-time views into assets, people and inventory.
Istanbul's Borusan Port expects to reduce fuel consumption by 2.5 percent, as well as decrease labor costs and ensure worker safety, with a UWB- and cellular-based system that monitors workers and vehicles.
SICK is among the first companies to offer a solution leveraging the UWB backchannel feature in Sewio's Studio 2.6 platform, allowing users to communicate with a tag and prompt it to light up so that it can be easily spotted.
Companies benefiting from ultra-wideband RTLS solutions are focusing on power management of personnel badges, minimizing anchor or reader infrastructure, and dedicating employees to oversee the system's operation.
Common technologies used in RTLS solutions include sub-gigahertz, ultra-wideband and Bluetooth Low Energy. Which would best meet your operational needs?
Which technologies will take the lead in wayfinding for employees and guests?
VELUX Commercial's production facility has leveraged an RTLS solution from Asseco CEIT, with Sewio UWB anchors and tags, to locate AGVs, workers and equipment within a short range, enabling an automated, flexible production process.
The standards organization is enabling companies with ultra-wideband technologies to have their products certified for meeting the FiRa specification for the IEEE 802.15.4z standard, so that UWB systems can coexist as the technology becomes more ubiquitous.
