What is UWB RTLS and how…

The manufacturing and logistics industries have driven new innovations and technological transformations for more than a century.

Everyone knows that the current period is marked by a new wave of innovation and Industry 4.0. Most of the focus is on technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT). In parallel, industrial digitization and the concept of a digital twin are evolving, which is made possible by the increasing development of location technologies such as real-time positioning systems (UWB RTLS).

Why do we need new site systems? There are more and more needs in companies when we need the exact location of equipment, products, and personnel within the facility at all times, all with the goal of higher productivity, better security and a major advantage over the competition.

Within buildings, any component of the infrastructure can confuse traditional location technology, which in turn affects the accuracy and reliability of information. The solution is UWB RTLS technology, which provides accurate and reliable information in real time despite all obstacles.

What is RTLS technology?

RTLS refers to any system that can locate an object or a person. An important aspect of RTLS is the time the data is monitored. However, this information can be used in different ways. In some places, for example, they only need timestamps when the asset passed through a certain area, while in others they need more accurate visibility and a constant update of the data. The perfect real-time location system can accurately locate, monitor and manage assets, inventory, and employees, enabling businesses to make better decisions based on location data.

Various technologies (RFID, Wi-Fi, GPS) are used for positioning, and among them, UWB technology has proven to be the most accurate and powerful.

What is Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology?

UWB is a short-range wireless communication protocol that, like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, uses radio waves to communicate. The main difference is that it uses high frequencies to collect spatial data. It can be compared to radar, which constantly sends signals across the entire space and locates objects with high accuracy.

Why should you start using UWB RTLS?

Because of its unparalleled accuracy, transmission speed, and reliability, UWB is the most popular GPS technology for the most demanding environments. Priber uses hardware from world-renowned manufacturer Pozyx as well as a global IoT award winner in its UWB RTLS solutions.

RTLS can be used in manufacturing, healthcare, shopping malls, smart warehouses, hospitality and other industries to increase workflow efficiency and security and find more convenient ways to manage inventory. However, one of the main advantages is the extremely high return on investment (ROI).

Reliability: With the Pozyx system, you can accurately measure and monitor the performance of all operators, determine true production times and analyze labor costs. You can create dynamic security zones and restricted zones.

Commitment: Track equipment and tools in real time, and limit their use to qualified operators only.
