KIO RTLS A UWB-Based Indoor Location System Introduction By Eliko
In the video produced by Eliko, precise positioning and common position technologies are compared to one another. Next, the KIO real time location technology is detailed, specifically providing information on its accuracy and how it works. To conclude, the website to find this system is provided.
Precise positioning plays an essential role in a range of industries such as manufacturing, warehouse management, and sports tracking. However, common positioning technologies rely on a clear line-of-sight, are notoriously sensitive to interference, or only have a measurement accuracy of 2 to 15 meters; not good enough for sophisticated operations.
The KIO real-time location system uses ultra-wideband technology to pass through obstacles and track any object with an accuracy of 30 centimeters. KIO works sort of like an indoor GPS by extrapolating positioning data with a system of anchors and tacks. Mount a minimum of 4 anchors to define a tracking area and attach a tag to anything you need to track. Raw data from the anchors is fed to a server which calculates the real-time position of a given object and outputs it as XYZ coordinates through a standard open API.
KIO technology is constantly finding its way into new applications. To test out the system in your particular use case visit https://www.sewio.net
