Sonitor Technologies Inc
Sonitor Technologies, recently named North American RTLS Emerging Company of the Year by Frost and Sullivan, offers a unique ultrasound IPS (Indoor Positioning System) that automatically tracks the real-time location of moveable equipment and/or people in complex environments with 100% room-level, or sub room-level (such as bed-level) accuracy.
Due to the unique attributes of ultrasound there is no risk of electromagnetic interference with other equipment. The low quantity of data transmitted from the Tags requires minimal LAN bandwidth so existing wired or wireless LAN can easily be leveraged. The Sonitor IPS, now chosen by more than 30 hospitals, is fully, easily and quickly scalable.

Q-Track develops and sells active RTLS based on the company's Near-Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER®) technology. NFER® technology is a radically new form of wireless tracking that brings real-time locating systems (RTLS) to the most difficult indoor environments. NFER® systems operate under Part 15 power levels in the AM broadcast band (530-1710kHz). By exploiting the properties of long wavelength, low frequency signals, NFER® systems deliver better propagation and near immunity from the multipath that plagues high frequency "solutions." Still in the prototype stage, Q-Track offers QT^(TM)-400 Starter Kits for sale to early adopters and strategic partners interested in evaluating the technology.
