RTLS

 

A real-time location system (RTLS) is a technology that detects the exact location of anything from a vehicle, to an item in a manufacturing plant, to a person.

 

RTLS is used in logistics, health care, the military, retail, recreation, and courier services.

 

Most RTLSs consist of wireless tags, badges or armbands that emit a radio signal. Some tags also log temperatures.

 

The range of RTLS applications is very diverse and includes:

 

– shortened search time for urgent equipment,

– prevention of theft,

– reduced patient wait times,

– alerting caregivers of patient activity/inactivity,

– improved response times to staff duress (or ‘man down’ scenarios,

– eg workers in freezer environments),

– ensuring that blood,

– tissue or medication are kept at safe temperatures, etc.
