The new Omlox standard

What can the new international Omlox standard do and what was it developed for? The following article provides answers to the most current and important questions about Omlox and standardization in the world of locating systems. State of the art of indoor locating Due to smaller production quantities and more individuality, the bottleneck of production today is no longer the machine, but the intralogistics.

Tech Deep-Dive (3/3): localization methods in 3D

Having considered localization in practice, we now extend in-plane localization to include a dimension for position determination in space. First, we will specifically highlight the challenges in determining z-coordinates and show ways to overcome them. We will then illustrate the transition of ToF circles into spheres and TDoA hyperbolas into hyperboloids.

Tech Deep-Dive (2/3): Localization methods in practice

In the continuation to the topic “localization methods” different procedures of the realization of a localization in the ZIGPOS RTLS shall be explained and illustrated here. The article explains in a simplified way the timing and interaction between tags and satellites during the ranking process. The last part (3/3) considers localization in space and addresses its challenges as well as possible solutions

Tech Deep-Dive (1/3): Localization methods

In the following technical blogpost series, we explain the basics and principles of ranging methods and give an overview of localization methods in ultra-wideband (UWB). We also describe their integration in the ZIGPOS RTLS. The blog posts are divided into 3 parts: This first part is limited to in-plane (2D) localization and its basic principles.
