Identify and track people or assets in real-time
Our clients are leveraging the benefits of location based services to improve health, safety and emergency responses, accountability and productivity
Location Based Services (LBS)
LBS can be leveraged from modern wireless infrastructure. For more specific and detailed applications, Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) can be overlayed onto existing wireless technology to provide centrimetre accurate location data.
Diverse Range of Industries
Solutions can be engineered to meet business requirements for the transportation, defence, healthcare, government, logistics, retail, manufacturing industries and more.
Communication between tracked items and the system provides meaningful data analysis and audit trails.
Specialist technical support, when you need it
Our managed services team are contactable 24/7 via our Australian service desk. With an expert team managing your solution you’ll benefit from fast response times.
Leverage our team’s deep knowledge and experience to not only design, deploy or enhance your LBS, RTLS and tracking technology, but to also review existing infrastrucutre to see what LBS datra can be leveraged to get you started on your journey.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Location Based Services (LBS)?
Location-based services (LBS) are a type of software service that uses geographical location to provide information or services to users. LBS services are becoming increasingly popular as mobile devices become more widespread. Some common examples of LBS services include:
- Navigation. LBS services can be used to provide turn-by-turn navigation instructions.
- Local search. LBS services can be used to find nearby businesses or points of interest.
- Geofencing. LBS services can be used to trigger notifications when a user enters or leaves a specific area.
- Beacons. LBS services can be used to deliver targeted advertising to users based on their location.
What is a Real-Time Location System (RTLS)?
RTLS is used to automatically identify and track the location of people and objects in real time, usually within a building or other contained area. Wireless RTLS tags are attached to objects or worn by people and their location is determined by fixed reference points using wireless signals from those tags.
Can you provide some examples of how Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) are used?
Examples include tracking objects through an assembly line, locating reusable transport packaging (RTPs) of merchandise in a warehouse or finding medical equipment and locating patients in a hospital.
How do Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) actually work?
The physical layer of RTLS technology is usually some form of radio frequency (RF) communication, but some systems use optical (usually infrared) or acoustic (usually ultrasonic) technology instead of, or in addition to, RF. Tags and fixed reference points can be transmitters, receivers, or both, resulting in numerous possible technology combinations. RTLS is a form of a local positioning system and does not usually refer to GPS or to mobile phone tracking.
Can RTLS help me drive efficiencies in my business?
RTLS Technology is the tool that business can use to unlock unlimited potential data insights about assets, equipment and personnel. For example, by “tagging” raw materials through a manufacturing process, business can identify bottlenecks through the process, then create a digital twin to simulate the process to identify process improvements.
