Real Time Location Systems (RTLS)
Real-time RFID-based systems using Wi-Fi for tracking of assets or people serve as an alternative solution to swipe systems. The RTLS setup is ideal for indoor or outdoor operations in critical environments including offshore and onshore platforms. The essential parts are an RFID tag, Wi-Fi, an RFID reader and an antenna. Inventory and workflow management and navigation are also possible business solutions. The merits of RTLS compared with conventional asset security systems are improved security, accurate GPS, complete asset visibility and orderly supply chain.
