Smart, Flexible, and Scalable RTLS Hardware for Any Indoor Environment

Our UWB tags and anchors create the most reliably accurate location system available

Positioned by Redpoint

Our patented technology is embedded into every device on our platform. That means that every performance limitation that stops other devices—crowding, heavy equipment, wide spaces, and speeding motion—won’t stop our system.

Plus, you can integrate our module into your existing products for the same powerful connectivity in your preferred form factor.

Reliably accurate

Redpoint’s RTLS hardware delivers accuracy within 10 cm—but more importantly, our high accuracy does not degrade in complex environments.

True low latency

Our patented Low Latency Link technology combines Ultra-wideband (UWB) and Bluetooth signal to deliver <100 ms latency. By using these simultaneously, accuracy and latency are not compromised even in complex areas with many tags.

Two-Way Communication

Send and receive messages via tags, change configuration, collect and view sensor data real-time, and deliver over-the-air firmware and software updates automatically.

Unlimited capacity and scalability

Redpoint’s system can easily cover millions of square feet with unlimited tags and up to 65,000 anchors. That’s four times as many as most other indoor positioning systems available today.

Long Battery Life

Because Bluetooth signal requires less power than Ultra-wideband, combining the two means the best of both worlds—the accuracy and low latency of UWB, with the long battery life of Bluetooth.

Tags


Our tags come in a variety of sizes and form factors to meet your specific needs: Personnel Badge, General Purpose Tag, Vehicle Mounted Tag and Module.

Every tag we make is embedded with our patented technology, and every device is compatible with our full real-time location system. That means if you start with a tag-only solution, you can easily add the full RTLS later when you are ready for more advanced features—no need to buy new devices.

Personnel Badge

The Personnel Badge is designed for employees to wear, and it comes in two versions—screened and screenless. Both versions offer:

  • RGB LED provides status as well as user-alert functionality
  • On-board buzzer alerts for safety hazards and incoming messages
  • 6-axis IMU for motion sensing and power management
  • Support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication
  • Support for Near Field Communication (NFC-A) listen mode
  • Long battery life
  • IP62

Additional features available only with Screened Badge:

  • The Electronic Paper Display (EPD) screen displays warning details related to a hazard
  • The user can receive and acknowledge messages and warnings

  • Multi-functional call button for resetting the tag and sending an emergency message to the server
  • Tri-color LED provides status as well as user-alert functionality
  • Includes a 4-pin sensor and alarm interface port: power input, alarm input, alarm output and ground
  • 6-axis IMU for motion sensing and power management
  • Magnetic Wireless Charge
  • Battery life lasts up to 3 years

Vehicle Mount Tag

The Vehicle Mount Tag brings collision detection and location awareness to vehicles, including material-moving forklifts.

  • Drive many user-selected alarming devices such as LED light strip and buzzers, as well as custom solutions
  • Connects directly to the vehicle power and can also operate on an internal battery for multiple days
  • Change configuration or update firmware without taking the tag off the vehicle
  • Designed for harsh operation conditions such as strong shock and constant vibration
  • Easily attach the tag to the vehicle with screws or zip ties, no special tools needed

Anchors


Our anchors form a virtual, wireless, geofenced environment and provide location and data services to enable two-way communication with any UWB device on the network.

They create a self-organizing mesh network and are completely self-calibrating. You can collect and view sensor data real-time and deliver over-the-air firmware and software updates automatically.

Indoor Ceiling Mount Anchor (ICMA)

The Indoor Ceiling Mount Anchor is a full-functioning UWB anchor designed to be deployed indoors.

  • Omnidirectional coverage with 50m (170ft) range for large-scale deployments
  • Power-over-ethernet provides constant DC power as well as data connectivity when connected to a switch
  • Over-the-air updates for upgrading and configuration
  • Easy installation with two mounting options: an I-beam clamp or screwed directly into your ceiling

Indoor PoE Anchor

The Indoor power-over-ethernet (PoE) Anchor is deployed indoors only.

  • Omnidirectional coverage with 50m (170ft) range for large-scale deployments
  • Power-over-ethernet provides constant DC power as well as data connectivity when connected to a switch
  • Over-the-air updates for upgrading and configuration
  • It is easily mounted to a surface such as a wall or column using the provided mounting bracket.

RTLS Module (for integration)

The RTLS Module has all the location tracking capabilities of our tags in a compact form factor, making it easy to integrate into your existing products. The self-contained module delivers high-accuracy positioning and data communication over the Redpoint UWB network without the need for additional hardware.

The module allows Redpoint partners and clients to design their own location tags or add real-time location and two-way data communication to existing devices, vehicles, and more.

The module is a single PCB design which includes:

  • Micro-controller
  • UWB radio transceiver with an onboard antenna
  • BLE radio with onboard antenna
  • 6-axis IMU
  • Power management circuitry
