Different requirements make for different setups, we describe three main setup categories here *
* The same hardware (with different firmware) can be used for these setups, so switching is easy
You can easily get started with just a bit of hardware. Range between two tags and use the resulting distance information. Easily start tracking positions, using autopositioning. For even more precision, transition into a “full RTLS” setup.
The best results are achieved with a full RTLS setup. Anchors are spread across the area, to be able to perform trilateration or multilateration, comparable to satellites in a GNSS positioning system. Positions are calculated by the positioning engine, which in turns sends them to other applications for further processing.
The infrastructureless approach. In some scenarios a fixed installation is not possible. When you need some positioning but you have no fixed environment to install anchors in, this is the perfect solution.
