What’s the best way to track and locate products and personnel?

While GPS is ubiquitous for outdoor location, it falls short inside buildings. Older real-time location system (RTLS) technologies are often inaccurate and unscalable. It's time for a revolution in location. That’s where WISER’s micro-location system enters the scene.

Product Description

WISER Systems, Inc.’s Redundant Radio Localization and Tracking (RRLT) system delivers immediate asset visibility and tracking in almost any environment. This can be used to automate inventory, eliminate manual scanning and searching, enhance security, ensure safety, prevent loss, and streamline operations generally, among many other uses.

Ultra-wideband (UWB) Antenna Nodes and Tracker Tags signal to one another to establish a wireless mesh. WISER’s tracking software calculates inch-level tag coordinates from these signals and overlays real-time asset locations on a site map or floor plan, continuously and autonomously locating any in-mesh asset affixed with a WISER tag. Real-time data can also be fed directly into an ERP, MES, or other software solution by integrating with WISER’s REST API.

System Benefits

  • Automate your inventory with immediate visibility of all key assets.

  • Eliminate manual scanning, searching, status updates, and other error-prone processes.

  • Slash your installation costs with auto-calibration and continuous location even through walls and obstacles.

  • Adjust the system yourself without rewiring, hiring electricians, or overhauling your infrastructure.

  • Scale your tracking project for nearly any number of units or size of setting.

  • Locate key materials around the clock, typically with inches-accurate location data.

  • Track accurately in heavy industry, indoors, or outdoors, maintaining top performance where legacy solutions fail.

  • Track assets for years at a time, thanks to low power requirements and long, configurable battery life.

General System Features

  • Delivers sub-meter and often inch-level precision.

  • Locates and tracks accurately in complex, reflective and metal-filled environments.

  • Operational range extends above 100 meters line-of-sight and 20-40 meters even through multiple interior walls, firewalls, or other obstacles.

  • Calibrates in a matter of moments.

  • Scales modularly to nearly any size, configuration or number of assets.

  • Allows cloud-based or on-premises solutions.

  • Can operate inside or outside firewalls for added security.

  • Operates 24-7 without the need for WiFi, Cellular, or GPS coverage.

  • IC compliant with IEEE802.15.4-2011.

  • FCC-certified.


WISER UWB Antenna Nodes.

Antennas

Antenna Nodes are positioned to establish the tracking perimeter and a wireless mesh. These antennas provide location data by triangulating signals from tags within the mesh. They can also be tracked as high-update rate tags.

Node Dimensions: 6” x 2” x 1”

  • Node weight: 40-45 grams

  • Antenna Nodes can be powered via USB port, battery, wall outlet, PoE, or solar

  • 110 milliamp current

  • 5 volt power draw

  • Operates indoors and out

  • Easy installation and adjustment

  • Features multiple tracking modes

  • Nodes can also be set to tracker-mode, doubling as high update-rate tags

  • Up to 300 meter range for Node tracking

A WISER UWB Tracker Tag.

Tags

Tracker Tags are small devices that ping at programmable frequencies, allowing the system to calculate location. Tags can be attached to nearly any type of physical asset to provide real-time updates on the asset’s status and location.

Tag Dimensions: 1" x 1.5"

  • Programmable ping rates up to 8 Hz

  • Tags enter power-saving sleep mode when motionless, lengthening battery life exponentially

  • Two-way data transmission capability provides status updates in real time even for tags in sleep mode

  • Data transfer rates up to 6.8 Mbps

  • Operates at ultra-low power (microwatts) for extra-long battery life

  • Operates on replaceable coin cell batteries

  • Battery life programmable from 1-10 years

  • Sends real-time power updates, alerting user before a battery fails and needs replacement


Software Features

The WISER Locator Software translates hardware data into inch-level coordinates. WISER’s GUI overlays these coordinates on a site map or floorplan. Data can also be integrated into other software systems using WISER’s REST API.

  • Delivers immediate asset visibility

  • Displays tracking histories with playback options up to x64 speed

  • Allows asset naming, labels, and searches

  • Enables users to create geofences at any point on a site map or floorplan

  • System Requirements:

    • OS: Windows (Vista or newer, server 2008 or newer, 64 bit)

    • System memory: 1 GB

    • Processor speed: 2.0 Ghz

    • Processor type: x86-64, dual core (minimum)

    • Storage: 1 GB

  • Web-based application coming soon
