The main types of components in real-time location systems (RTLS) are hardware, software, and service.In RTLS hardware, a transmitter is attached to an individual or property and uses a wireless signal to provide identification and location data to receivers.

Signals from tagged assets are received by RTLS receivers placed across the facility, which identify the location.They can detect location either by the tag’s proximity to receivers or by a mathematical technique called trilateration, based on the wireless technology employed.

The different technologies include RFID, Wi-Fi, ultra-wideband (UWB), bluetooth low energy (BLE), ultrasound, infrared (IR), GPS and others and is used in inventory or asset tracking and management, personnel or staff locating and monitoring, access control and security, environmental monitoring, supply chain management, and operational automation or visibility and others.
