PathPartner Announces the Availability of RTLS Kit Based on Decawave Chip
Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) are generally used in indoor positioning systems (IPS) to locate objects or people inside a building using radio waves, magnetic fields, acoustic signals, or other sensory information. Decawave chips use Ultra-Wideband technology that distinguishes all the different paths between the transmitter and receiver and is thus used to calculate distance. PathPartner, with its strong command over UWB (IEEE802.15.4) technology, has customized boards based on the Decawave DW1000 UWB chip, allowing it to support NFC, Wi-Fi, and GPS connectivity technologies.
The Hardware developed at PathPartner can be configured as Anchor or Tag. While Anchors are stationary and are placed at vantage positions in the locations zone wherein assets need to be tracked, Tags are the moving entities being tracked. The Cloud solution allows communication of data over a Wi-Fi module facilitating the display of tracking the tags.
“Our design and development teams, with their years of experience in hardware & software design, have built a kit for Real Time Location Tracking. Subsequently, the solution will be extended to support Geo-Fencing and Navigation applications as well”, says Ramkishor Korada, PathPartner’s Global Head of Sales and Business Development.
Partnered with Decawave, PathPartner wants to facilitate accurate micro-location solutions to the market by delivering software, hardware or turn-key systems to end customers.
“We are delighted to partner with PathPartner and see them adding Decawave’s technology to their already impressive portfolio. PathPartner’s one stop shop offer with a highly valuable expertise ranging from HW design to cloud services will be extremely beneficial to customers looking for agile accurate Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) solutions to grow their business” said Luc Darmon, Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, Decawave.
