Location of Things
With Indoor and Outdoor location, you get greater control and operational performance.
What is Location of Things?
Location of Things (LoT) is a subcategory of the Internet of Things (IoT), where location is the main component.
The term «Localization of Things» (LoT) describes technologies and disciplines capable of tracking the location and movement of objects indoors or outdoors.
BENEFITS OF LOCATION OF THINGS
Thanks to LoT, it is possible to make operational sense of location, since as an object moves, it is possible to generate data on where it is. Therefore; It makes it possible to make work processes more efficient by knowing when? And where is an asset located?
There are countless applications where knowing the location of a tool, part, motor, person, container, etc. represents great value and operational utility.
The components that make up IoT Systems include: Indoor/Outdoor Location Technology, Asset Management, Digital Mapping, Geographic Information Systems, Location-Based Network Monitoring.
LoT technology can be applied both in large open areas or in closed local areas. The former are supported by the «Outdoor Location Technology» that uses global satellite navigation systems, cellular positioning, among others.
On the other hand, Indoor Localization has used RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers technique) and UWB (Ultra Wide Band) PHY (Physical Layer) technologies for Indoor Asset Location.
With Indoor Location technology, it is possible to locate objects or people, control inventories, optimize jobs, among many other applications.
