Real-Time Locating System [RTLS]


Real-Time Locating System [RTLS] solutions provide organizations with visibility into the precise, real-time location of an asset (personnel or equipment), thereby increasing operational efficiency and optimizing workforce. Despite its benefits, there has been resistance to its widespread adoption due to the limitations in accuracy, cost of sensors/tags and the complex infrastructure requirements. Bluvision’s cloud-based RTLS solution provides superior accuracy, requires minimal hardware and comes with the lowest Total Cost of Ownership [TCO] in the market today, making it the BETTER.FASTER.CHEAPER. solution.

The BETTER RTLS Solution

Accuracy: Bluvision’s SaaS-based RTLS uses a combination of Bluetooth LE and Bluvision’s proprietary location engine to determine specific location of assets (employees, equipment and inventory). By combining smart firmware on the beacons that transmit custom messages, smart firmware on BLE/WiFi gateways and advanced algorithms on the cloud, we are able to achieve accuracy greater than one-meter. The accuracy can be maintained even in large, open spaces with a lot of metal objects, people, and RF noise.

Micro Geofences: Our cloud solution, has various RTLS components built into it that promises unprecedented accuracy and range. One of the key features of the solution is the ability to create unique geofences with ease. Enterprises can, not just monitor when an asset enters the geofences, but are also capable of recording history of movement and dwell-time of these assets that enable predictive analysis.

Scalability: Further, enterprises can remotely manage their sensor beacons and BLE/WiFi gateways through the cloud which immediately allows for the solution to be scalable – an inherent requirement for large, global enterprises looking to track assets.

 

The FASTER RTLS Solution

Fast and quick to implement: Other solutions require massive installation expenditure in terms of servers, cables, antennas etc. Bluvision’s cloud-based solution does not require wired hardware. The installation entails plugging in of AC-powered BLE/WiFi gateways and attaching the sensor beacons to assets being tracked. Our “install and go” solution gives enterprises the ability to quickly manage thousands of devices/assets and gain visibility into their precise location, at scale.

 

The CHEAPER RTLS Solution

Minimal hardware: Using BLE devices (considering over a billion Bluetooth devices were sold last year) allows us to drive down the cost while still being able to deliver amazing on-chip capabilities. Our solution requires minimal hardware (BLE sensors and Bluetooth/WiFi gateways) saving enterprises the costs involved in the expensive infrastructure setup of antennas, servers, cable, etc. As a cloud-based solution, we do not require server configuration and can get the data to the cloud using existing WiFi.

Our RTLS solution has fully exposed APIs pushing location data & micro geofence alerts.
