Frequently Asked Questions

Is there something you need to know?


What kind of assets can be tracked with RTLS?

Icone plus

An RTLS (Real-Time Location System) system can track a variety of physical objects with high accuracy and real-time visibility. Some of the objects that can be tracked with an RTLS system include:
- Vehicles: RTLS systems can be used to track the location of cars, trucks, and other vehicles within a facility or across a wide area.
People: RTLS systems can be used to track the movements of people within a facility, such as employees, visitors, and patients in hospitals.
- Assets: RTLS systems can be used to track the location of valuable assets such as tools, equipment, machinery, and inventory within a facility.Products: RTLS systems can be used to track the movement of products within a facility or across a supply chain, from manufacturing to delivery
- Animals: RTLS systems can be used to track the location of animals in farms or research facilities.
- Mobile devices: RTLS systems can be used to track the location of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, which can be useful for managing mobile workforces or tracking inventory.
- Containers: RTLS systems can be used to track the location and movement of containers, such as shipping containers or storage containers.Overall, an RTLS system can help improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and increase safety by providing real-time location data for a wide range of physical objects


Which environment is suitable for the implementation of a Hybrid RTLS system?

Icone plus

A Hybrid RTLS system can be implemented in any environment where real-time location data is needed to optimise processes, improve safety, and enhance the customer or user experience.
One of the advantages of implementing a Hybrid RTLS system is that different technical architectures proposed by Ubudu can be used to find a suitable solution for all kinds of environments and use cases.
For example, Ubudu offers a range of technologies, such as Ultra-Wideband (UWB), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and RFID, that can be combined and tailored to specific use cases.Moreover, Ubudu's Hybrid RTLS systems can be customised to meet the specific needs and requirements of different industries and applications.
Depending on the environment and use case, Ubudu can recommend a technical architecture that provides the optimal balance of accuracy, range, battery life, and cost-effectiveness.
By doing so, Ubudu can provide a tailored solution that meets the unique needs of each customer, whether it is for industrial, healthcare, retail, logistics, or any other use case. Therefore, whether it is to track tools, equipment, and machinery in a manufacturing plant or patients and staff in a hospital, Ubudu's Hybrid RTLS system can provide a solution that improves efficiency, reduces costs, and enhances safety and security


How accurate is Ubudu RTLS ?

Icone plus

Ubudu's Hybrid RTLS system provides high accuracy in location tracking, thanks to its use of various technologies and sensors.
With Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology, Ubudu can achieve distance measurements between devices with an accuracy of 10cm, making it highly precise. This high level of accuracy can be leveraged event in complex environments such as manufacturing plants and warehouses.
Furthermore, the positions of a tag can be calculated with an accuracy of 30cm with our TODA (Time Difference of Arrival) system.
In addition to UWB, Ubudu also uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, which provides an accuracy of between 2-5m depending on the environment. This can be useful in environments where precision is not as critical.
Moreover, Ubudu leverages other sensors such as accelerometers to improve the accuracy of the positions calculated. This can be especially useful in situations where the environment is dynamic or subject to frequent changes, such as in a sports or entertainment venue where the positions of attendees and equipment may need to be constantly monitored.
Overall, with its use of various technologies and sensors, Ubudu's Hybrid RTLS system provides high accuracy and reliable location tracking that can be customised to meet the specific needs of different environments and use cases.


How often can the tag position be updated with Hybrid RTLS?

Icone plus

The frequency at which the tag position can be updated with Ubudu Hybrid RTLS depends on the specific technology used and can be configured based on the requirements of the application.
With Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology, the positions can be updated every 100ms at best, providing real-time visibility of the location of objects or people being tracked. This high update frequency is particularly useful in environments where accuracy and real-time tracking are critical, such as in manufacturing plants or healthcare facilities.
On the other hand, with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, the positions can be updated every second at best. This lower update frequency may be sufficient for applications such as tracking customers in a retail store or monitoring the location of equipment in a warehouse.
To optimise battery consumption, Ubudu tags can be configured to have a different advertising frequency when in movement and when idle. For example, the tags can be set to advertise their location more frequently when they are in motion, allowing for more frequent updates, and reduce the advertising frequency when they are idle, extending the battery life.
Overall, the update frequency of the tag position with Ubudu Hybrid RTLS is customisable and can be adjusted based on the specific requirements of the application, allowing for real-time visibility of the location of objects or people being tracked while also optimising battery consumption.
