Link Labs has announced the release of AirFinder OnSite, its next-generation IoT asset tracking platform for campus-based environments that improves accuracy and affordability. AirFinder OnSite is a Real-Time Location System (RTLS) that provides sub-meter accuracy by using a Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) radio to support both Bluetooth LE and phase ranging.
Link Labs will officially unveil AirFinder OnSite in a free webinar on March 18, 2021 at 1:00pm ET. Link Labs is initially offering AirFinder OnSite to early technology adopters through the company’s AirFinder Early Access Program. General availability is expected in Summer 2021.
“AirFinder OnSite represents a significant leap forward for real-time asset location and tracking technology and we’re very excited to be first to market with an enterprise solution that uses phase ranging to bring location accuracy with Bluetooth LE tags to the sub-meter level – to within an arm’s length,” said Bob Proctor, CEO of Link Labs.
“We’ve also successfully driven infrastructure and tag costs out of the platform, which makes AirFinder OnSite the first to eliminate the need to choose between high cost/high accuracy ultra-wideband solutions or low cost/low accuracy traditional Bluetooth LE solutions – both high accuracy and low cost are now attainable for companies of all sizes.”
AirFinder OnSite is ideal for IoT tracking in distribution centers and warehouses. It’s also suitable for various IoT applications in manufacturing, healthcare and supply chain and logistics management, among others. With seven patented or patent-pending Link Labs technologies, AirFinder OnSite was developed on Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52833, a general-purpose multiprotocol SoC (system-on-chip) with a Bluetooth LE Direction Finding capable radio.
AirFinder OnSite features:
Link Labs’ AirFinder platform is a complete, secure, flexible and software-driven platform for multiple location types – indoor, outdoor and everywhere in-between. It is natively intelligent in every aspect – from firmware, sensors, tags and beacons to real-time data analytical models.
AirFinder does not require an internal WiFi system and is capable of operating on its own secure network layer via Link Labs’ Symphony Link or other third-party network layer technology, such as Bluetooth mesh technologies. AirFinder is rapidly deployable and highly scalable – it uses significantly less infrastructure than other systems—which accelerates IoT deployment to just days, not months.
Location data from each AirFinder device securely flows to the AirFinder web app or directly to customer databases via extensible APIs, which provides the ability to locate and monitor assets in real-time, analyse asset history, add rules and alerts, establish geofences and more. The AirFinder platform also provides remote monitoring and device management, allowing the system to easily be optimised at any time for different use cases.
