Inpixon, the Indoor Intelligence™ company, today announced the Inpixon Personnel Tag, a compact, lightweight ultra-wideband (UWB) locator tag for Inpixon’s real-time location system (RTLS).
It is designed to deliver 30-centimeter accuracy to locate employees or visitors in real-time in order to support a variety of safety and security use cases.
The RTLS market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.8% during the 2020-2025 period, according to market research firm MarketsandMarkets, and the demand specifically for UWB technology-based RTLS solutions is anticipated to surge. The firm reports that, UWB offers higher accuracy and range with lower power consumption in comparison with most other RTLS technologies, leading to its increased penetration in applications requiring high accuracy.
Nadir Ali, CEO of Inpixon, noted:
“There are a number of situations where location precision is paramount, and safety and security applications top the list.”
“Finding an employee quickly in an emergency, executing an evacuation, mustering, identifying crowding, or locating unescorted visitors are just a few examples. Performing space and floor planning based on actual personnel usage patterns is another. RTLS can deliver increased visibility, safety, and productivity for corporate enterprises, manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, healthcare and other industries. We’re pleased to offer this new tag through Inpixon and its reseller partners as well as to OEMs and integrators in white- and private-labeled options.”
The Inpixon Personnel Tag is used in conjunction with Inpixon’s UWB anchors and nanoLES location engine for an RTLS solution capable of supporting large-scale deployments. Key features of the tag in addition to its centimeters-level accuracy include wireless charging with industry-standard Qi chargers; a durable IP65 housing to protect against water, dirt and impact; over-the-air firmware updates; and wireless configuration to ease deployment and changes.
Adam Benson, CTO of Inpixon, said:
“The tag is small and light, yet our engineering team was still able to build in an impressive set of capabilities. For example, the tag’s configurable transmission rate — supporting up to 10 blinks per second — enables administrators to realize their ideal balance of updates and battery usage. And the onboard 3-D accelerometer allows for the tag to conserve battery life when not in motion. From form factor to performance, I believe this new tag is a great complement to our enterprise-class RTLS solution.”
