What is RTLS: Real Time Locating Systems?

Real Time Location Systems, also referred to as RTLS, allow for modern technology to determine the location of an item or person in real time. RTLS doesn’t necessarily have to refer to one piece of technology, but is rather an initiative that can be accomplished through the integration of various systems. It is commonly used for tracking and managing assets in industrial settings. The data collected by RTLS systems can be utilized for many different purposes such as creating timestamps for when an asset moves into a certain area. Another application could be about granular visibility that requires constant updates. RTLS solutions generally capitalize on locating, tracking and managing assets, people and inventories so that companies are better equipped to make educated decisions on the data they have collected and optimize their operations while enhancing workplace safety.
