Solution details

Ubudu Hybrid RTLS is a complete system that includes hardware, software and tools to track the real-time location of assets, create geofences and analyse operational flows.

Ubudu hybrid RTLS hardware


Ubudu hardware includes a wide range of Hybrid Tags, Anchors and Gateways with different form factors, technologies and features in order to address different customer needs in any type of environment. Ubudu RTLS is also compatible with Third-Party Hardware as it uses standard radio protocols (BLE, UWB, LoRa, Wi-Fi).

Anchors & Gateways

Fixed devices exchanging radio signals with tags and sending back data to the software on the server.

Ubudu hybrid RTLS software


Ubudu software computes real-time positions of tags and displays them on a map, triggers geofence alerts and records data to be accessed through an Analytics Dashboard for further insights.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there something you need to know?

What kind of assets can be tracked with RTLS?
Icone plus

Any physical object with a certain size can be tracked using Ubudu Hybrid RTLS. For example, you can track tools, equipment and machines in factories, or stretchers, beds and pumps in hospitals.

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

The different technical architectures proposed by Ubudu allows to find a suitable solution for all kinds of environments and use cases. Feel free to contact us in order to receive recommendation on which technical architecture to use based on your environment and use case.

How accurate is Ubudu RTLS ?
Icone plus

Using UWB, the distance measurement between devices is of 10cm, and the positions of a tag is 30cm.
With BLE, the accuracy is between 2-5m depending on the environment.
Ubudu also leverages other sensors such as accelerometer to improve the accuracy of the positions calculated.

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

The update frequency is configurable and depends on the technology chosen. For example, with UWB, the positions can be updated every 100ms at best whereas with BLE, the positions can be updated every second at best.
To reduce battery consumption, Ubudu tags can have a different advertising frequency when in movement and when idle.
