Tracking for security and safety

Ever tried using GPS indoors? You probably noticed that it's not very effective. Real-time tracking of personnel, vehicles, or assets indoors in high-risk applications require a high degree of reliability and accuracy. Using Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radio technology, Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) can be invaluable for workplace safety in a warehouse or for perimeter security when married with video analytics. http://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/tracking-for-security-and-safety/

The future of indoor positioning

Whether the goal is simply to aid shoppers in a mall or prevent accidents in warehouses, the solution is increasingly spelled IPS, as in Indoor Positioning Systems. An IPS solution locates people or objects inside buildings, typically via readers or sensors reporting to a mobile device such as a smart phone or tablet. http://futurelab.assaabloy.com/en/the-future-of-indoor-positioning/
