What is the position estimation accuracy?
The average accuracy is 10-30cm. But it depends on several parameters such as anchor placement, the movement speed of the tracked object/person, line-of-sight (LOS) conditions, etc.
Do I need your hardware to work with the software?
No, our software can be used without our hardware. You can use tags/anchors from other vendors. For example, the DWM1001 boards by Decawave.
How do I power and connect the devices?
Anchors can be powered using Power Over Ethernet (PoE), USB or a power supply. Tags can be power over USB or using a LiPo battery. Listener anchors need a network connection as well (preferably ethernet).
Does the system require line of sight (LOS)?
No, unlike e.g. camera-based localization
What's the system's range?
The range between the devices depends on different factors like orientation, line of sight (LOS), channel availability and the type of antenna. An omnidirectional antenna can have a maximal range of about 150 m. Regulations, which can differ from country to country, can limit the transmitted power and as such the range.
How does UWB compare to other technologies?
Ultra-wideband, although currently more expensive, can have several advantages over competing technologies. Take a look at our technology comparison for a better overview!
What about interference?
UWB utilizes a broad frequency band and low transmit power. As such it does cause interference for narrowband RF technologies. It does not suffer from interference due to these signals either.
Are the devices certified?
Some devices are CE and/or FCC certified. Some other devices are highly configurable which means that they can’t be certified, since certification requires specific settings to be fixed.
What's RTLOC's business model?
We’re a technology provider. This means that we offer our technology to integrators who use it to make their own end market solution. We can also work project-based with the client to make sure it fully fits the end application.
