The typical sensor software platforms, gateway devices, and integrated devices can be deployed across various industries. Indoor farming worker productivity, warehouses, construction sites – for industrial asset tracking, raw material tracking & monitoring, equipment anti-theft monitoring, visitor and workforce tracking at worksites and warehouses, and large construction sites.

Indoor location tracking technology options available

Wi-Fi-based tracking utilizes the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to estimate the location of devices. Wi-Fi access points can measure signal strength and triangulate the position of devices within a space. This technology is widely adopted and can provide good accuracy, but it relies on the availability and density of Wi-Fi access points and the network is susceptible to electrical interferences.

BLE mesh beacons are small, battery-powered devices that transmit signals to nearby devices. By measuring the signal strength from multiple beacons, a device can estimate its location. BLE mesh beacons are easy to deploy and can achieve good accuracy, they do not require installing and maintaining the beacon infrastructure.

UWB technology uses short-range radio waves to measure the time it takes for signals to travel between devices. It can provide highly accurate positioning with centimeter-level precision. UWB requires specialized hardware and infrastructure, and it is commonly used in applications like asset tracking or indoor navigation.

Computer vision techniques use cameras and image processing algorithms to track the position of objects or people within a space. This technology can be accurate and adaptable to different environments, but it requires appropriate camera placement, and image processing capabilities, and may raise privacy concerns.

The choice of the best indoor location tracking technology depends on factors such as accuracy requirements, cost, infrastructure constraints, privacy considerations, and the specific use case. It’s advisable to evaluate multiple technologies and consider the unique needs of your application before making a decision.
