The use of Bluetooth Low Energy in beacons was originally conceived as a way to trigger proximity based events in retail outlets. However, by incorporating angle of arrival and received signal strength, Fathom has taken this even further, enabling true x-y positioning.
This capability opens up an entire segment of the indoor asset tracking market that could not be properly served by RFID, Wi-Fi or UWB.
With typical accuracy of 2 meters, and special use-cases down to 15 cm, Fathom goes beyond proximity, providing accurate x-y coordinates that integrate with a customer’s existing asset tracking, business intelligence, compliance or control systems.
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
