Omnisense has developed a revolutionary Real Time Locating System which can accurately (1 metre or better under good conditions) track and locate people, animals and physical assets without the need for expensive pre-installed infrastructure.
Based on industry standard 2.4GHz wireless sensor network (WSN) technology, the nodes form a mesh network.
By measuring time-of-arrival (TOA) of radio signals exchanged between neighbours the sophisticated Omnisense Joint Timing and Location Engine computes their positions.
The patented cluster positioning techniques offer significant advantages over traditional approaches:
● Low cost and easy installation (expensive fixed infrastructure not required)
● Real-time positioning with high accuracy
● Full positioning capability including orientation, direction and motion characterisation
● Support for large networks and high position update rates
● Works indoors and outdoors
● Complementary to GPS or works in conjunction with GPS to extend coverage
Outputs are delivered to third-party applications over TCP/IP using industry standard internet protocols. The Omnisense Collector handles preprocessing of the data stream and delivers contextually relevant information: whether position, direction, zone, change of state, fall detected, telemetry data or other information.
