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.
