Infrared RTLS Systems

Devices that use infrared technology are mounted on a room’s ceiling and programmed to oversee various sections of the space. Whenever a tag moves into one of these monitored areas, it is identified as being present within that specific section.

How Infrared RTLS Systems Work

Infrared (IR) systems utilize infrared signals to pinpoint the position of objects or individuals bearing tags. These systems function based on the line-of-sight (LoS) principle, rendering them highly effective for achieving precise room-level location tracking in regulated settings. However, it’s noteworthy that contemporary IR systems are designed to overcome traditional line-of-sight constraints.
