    • Eliko UWB RTLS
      The Eliko UWB RTLS system consists of anchors, different tags, RTLS Engine and RTLS Manager software. The mobile tag uses ultra-wideband radio technology to communicate with the anchors that are placed around the tracking area. The tag chooses anchors based on self-learning algorithms from which the distances are calculated. Based on the distances measured, the coordinates are calculated in the server using state-of-the-art self-learning algorithms.
