Bluetooth AoA locating system is featured by its sub-meter accuracy, high capacity, high compatibility, low cost and low energy. AoA-based RTLS solutions can be applied to a wide range of scenarios, including healthcare, manufacturing, retailing, transportation, public security, and etc.

Ultra Wide Band (UWB) is a technology to transmit data by sending or receiving narrow pulse across a GHz level bandwidth. UWB locating system boasts high accuracy and stability, with a relatively higher cost than other locating technology. It is often applied in factories, law enforcement agencies, automotive assembly lines, logistic warehouses, power plants, and etc.
