High-accuracy, low-power-consumption Locix LPS

LOCIX Digitizing Physical Space Murata

The Position Detection LPS System is a module capable of locating Wi-Fi-equipped devices with accuracy within 1 meter in both indoor and outdoor environments.
Compared with positioning systems utilizing existing Wi-Fi technology, it makes it possible to locate, track, and analyze the positions of persons and objects with extremely high accuracy even in busy indoor environments at low cost.
This system enables enterprises to increase visibility substantially and thereby boost productivity and efficiency.

Features

Proprietary Localization Algorithms from Locix
and Wi-Fi technology from Murata

  • Accurate performance in dynamically changing environments
  • Open API allowing integration with enterprise applications
  • UI with analytics function for visualizing KPIs
  • Lowest total cost of ownership

There are a variety of issues in actual operating settings, such as non-line-of-sight environments or multipath-tolerant environments. Even in such environments, the Locix LPS provides more highly accurate position information than competing products.

Solution utilization example

- Distribution center warehouse -
LPS solution for indoor position detection

The LPS solution utilizes multiple fixed stations (anchors) installed inside the distribution warehouse to track the positions of tags attached to persons and objects in order to improve the flow lines within the warehouse and boost productivity.

- Main functions -

  • Sub-1m accurate, real-time location
  • Display of heat maps
  • Measurement of distance travelled
  • Tracking and analysis of activity
  • Open API for integration

Locix’s patented local positioning system (LPS) technology is employed to collect highly accurate indoor positioning information, and this, combined with highly accurate cloud analysis, is used to provide visualization and unique insights related to operations.
