Swarm Location Service

Delivery of precise location information radically simplified

(PresseBox) (Berlin / Cambridge, ) nanotron Technologies, the leader in easy-to-use solutions for location-awareness and Omnisense a leader in positioning and behaviour monitoring announce today the launch of swarm location service (SLS) at Embedded World 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany. SLS is an entirely new software product that radically simplifies how precise location information is generated in real-time. It utilizes Omnisense’ revolutionary Real Time Locating System which can accurately track and locate people, animals and physical assets without the need for expensive pre-installed infrastructure.

SLS runs on the low-cost OmniWhere appliance replacing a dedicated location server. The product includes data management tools and an application programming interface (API). With it software engineers are able to focus on developing their business application right from the start of their project.

Dave Bartlett, CTO of Omnisense says: "The swarm location service provides real-time and historical location information for business applications through a comprehensive API. The information could be used locally on the OmniWhere appliance or remotely over the Internet anywhere in the world."

The combination of swarm location service software with nanotron’s growing family of swarm bee modules is an ideal fit for cost-sensitive location systems that need to track up to a hundred items in real-time. "SLS delivers precise location information at the lowest possible cost. It complements nanotron’s nanoLES product that targets high scalability at the highest possible throughput." explains Thomas Foerste, VP Sales and Marketing at nanotron Technologies.

Omnisense and nanotron Technologies are committed to continuing their joint effort to further simplify the deployment of precise location technology at the lowest possible cost.

About the swarm product family

Nanotron’s swarm product family consists of swarm bee modules and the swarm location service (SLS) software. Swarm bee modules are available with Chirp or UWB radio technology. Both versions are sharing the common swarm API. The swarm product family targets the growing market for autonomous smart items and cuts time to market for location-aware products by 12 months. Very precise low-cost location technology can now be used without the need for RF-design capabilities or expertise on low level device drivers. Developers focus on application design.

Nanotron Technologies GmbH

Today, nanotron's embedded location platform delivers location-awareness for safety and productivity solutions across industrial and consumer markets. The platform consists of chips, modules and software that enable precise real-time positioning and concurrent wireless communication. The ubiquitous proliferation of interoperable location platforms is creating the location-aware Internet of Things. More information on Follow nanotron Technologies on LinkedIn.
