Omnisense provides state-of-the-art high accuracy (20cm) 3D locating and tracking solutions making it easier to manage assets - people, equipment, materials or animals - through knowledge of location, position and behaviour whether indoors or outdoors.

Our patent protected Joint Timing and Location Engine (JTLE) delivers high quality location information to your applications using industry standard IP protocols and APIs.

We solve the difficult problem of turning physical measurements made by devices into easy to  understand location information:

  • Device developers can focus on designing better devices for their customers;
  • Application developers can focus on building better applications that leverage the power of location information.

We make localisation easy for both.

Our whereBox Location appliance delivers localisation information to end user applications using industry standard IP protocols such as HTTP, REST, JSON, GeoJson and MQTT.

Clearly defined ontologies and the ability to access data as real-time streams, on demand or historically gives applications unprecedented flexibility for dealing with rich 3D location data including velocity (speed and direction) and device orientation.

The Omnisense JTLE makes use of all available measurements from devices. By combining inertial sensor data (INS) with time-of-arrival (TOA) of radio signals (UWB, chirp and others), GPS when available, time-of-flight (ToF), Bluetooth Smart (BLE) and other measurements the sophisticated Omnisense Joint Timing and Location Engine takes positioning to a new level of performance.

By exploiting the JTLE and Omnisense clustering algorithms positioning and tracking systems can be deployed more economically than conventional reader-based systems:

● Low cost - expensive readers or access points are eliminated and all devices, whether fixed or mobile, may be low cost wireless devices;

● Flexible - Everything can be configured and managed using the whereBox;

● Secure end-to-end from devices to cloud, including authentication and access controls;

● All positioning data is recorded and managed and is accessible to authorised applications;

● Works with Omnisense S500 cluster location devices and Nanotron Swarm bee, both indoors and outdoors.

  • Omnisense is pleased to officially launch its updated S500 Cluster Positioning System comprising the S524 Personnel, S534 Rugged, and S554 gateway devices. These devices combine 2.4GHz CSS with UWB and Bluetooth Smart in a tri-mode radio implementation for the ultimate in positioning accuracy (20cm) and communication distances up to 400m and networks that can span kilometres using the Omnisense mesh network implementation.

  • David Bartlett gives a talk to the CETC about indoor positioning summarising some of the key technologies that can be used and some of the issues holding back wide-scale adoption, citing challenges in contextualising and presenting indoor location information in ways that users can easily relate to.

  • Omnisense launches the whereBox location appliance at Embedded World 2016 in Nuremburg in conjunction with Nanotron swarm bee. The whereBox provides the Omnisense Joint Timing and Location Engine with database backend and full support for the Location API in a small form factor as a simple plug-and-play appliance device. The whereBox support both Omnisense S500 Cluster Location Devices and Nanotron swarm bee devices for positioning.

  • Press release announcing cooperation between Omnisense and Nanotron to integrate Nanotron swarm bee devices into the Omnisense Localisation system. First solutions from the joint initiative will be presented at Embedded World 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany from February 23-25.

  • Andy Thurman speaking at the AgriTech East September Pollinator, Engineering, electronics and software for agriculture, which is being held on Tuesday 22 September at Russell Smith Farms, Elmdonbury. To find out more visit the event page here.

  • Omnisense awarded Agri-Tech Growth Initiative R&D funding - Thanks to the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Omnisense has been awarded funding to carry out cutting edge research via The Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative. The grant award of £60,000 will be used to make it simple for non-expert installers to set up Omnisense's sophisticated indoor positioning system.
