The metraTec Indoor Positioning System (IPS) allows you to create a flexible localization infrastructure to track objects and persons inside buildings where cost and complexity can be adjusted to your needs. If you chose to install a stationary localization system the IPS Receivers will be the central component of your real-time localization system (RTLS).

The device is mounted at all relevant places in your building where your mobile objects or persons should be localized. The boxes scan the area for signals from our IPS Beacons and send this information to the central software via standard Ethernet. This data includes the ID of the beacon as well as the signal strength (RSSI) to give you an idea of how far the beacon is away from the receiver station. Since the communication protocol used is completely open the server software can be our IoT Engine Software Suite but also your own software/middleware.
