Why Bluetooth is the Hottest Technology for Real-Time Location Systems
Learn about the advantages of Fathom’s Bluetooth RTLS for Indoor Positioning
The RTLS industry is rapidly adopting Bluetooth for a number of asset tracking scenarios that were poorly suited for RFID, Wi-Fi or ultra-wideband (UWB) technology.
Fathom represents the next generation of indoor location technology, utilizing Bluetooth to enable asset tracking and RTLS with 2 meter or better accuracy. Fathom’s subscription-based location as a service (LaaS) offering provides greater coverage than RFID, better accuracy than Wi-Fi and a lower cost than UWB.
This White Paper is designed to help you better understand the current landscape of indoor positioning technologies and how Fathom’s Bluetooth solution is changing the RTLS market.
The traditional RTLS as we know it is coming to an end. Previously, the market consisted of solutions that offered a hard cost/accuracy trade-off that often limited the market. High accuracy came at a very high cost, while even room-level technologies such as Wi-Fi/RFID are expensive and difficult to implement.ABI Research
