RTLS Solution

RTLS solution

Advances in Real time location systems, which now enable precise, reliable and low cost monitoring and tracking of people, assets and heavy equipment, are driving a new wave of transformation across industries. At PathPartner, we have developed high-precision RTLS building blocks, which provide a strong foundation to solution providers developing real time location and indoor positioning systems for various industries. The solution harnesses the power of ultra-wide band (IR-UWB) technology based on IEEE 802.15.4-2011 standard, the gold standard technology for precise calculation of the location of the assets, using TWR (Two way Ranging) methodology and trilateration.

Want to see our reference solution in action?

In this video, we are showcasing RTLS using TDoA (Time Difference of Arrival) positioning technology. TDoA requires a minimum of 3 Anchors to determine the position of a Tag.

Here, we have mapped the entire floor of our office to the Application Interface which is running on a computer. 4 Anchors are placed at different positions on the floor in order to precisely locate and monitor the Tag’s movement. The tracked movement of the Tag is displayed on the Application Interface.

Make your manufacturing intelligent and dynamic by keeping track of every asset and process. High-tech location tracking, navigation, geo-fencing will help in the automation of several processes, avoiding collisions, creating alerts, thus, enhancing the overall efficiency of the system.


An efficient RTLS alongside a robust WMS can help your organization reduce labor costs, improve inventory accuracy, improve flexibility and responsiveness, decrease errors in picking and shipping goods, and improve customer service.


Real-time tracking of individuals and objects, engaging the target audience with the location-based advertisement, utilization and analysis of location data to gain insight about customer behavior will improve the overall quality of your business.


Locating staff, tracking patients, managing assets, monitoring environment will become most straightforward with an RTLS deployed. Tracking, Locating, Geo-fencing are the most common concerns of a healthcare unit which usually deals with critical cases.

Smart Parking
Smart Parking

One of the biggest challenges your city is facing can be overcome with the use of a positioning system, thereby guiding drivers to empty parking spaces, alerting them of any obstacles nearby. RTLS can also help in creating multi-level parking.
