Presentation Summary

GNSS opened markets for location-based services but failed indoors and in industrial areas. Likewise, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth failed due to their poor reliability and accuracy. Mission critical applications require accurate positions at highest confidence level. Todays most advanced UWB transceivers deliver pinpoint accuracy but are they ready for mass-markets? Is it easy enough to roll-out RTLS even in complex IT-landscapes?
