Model S500 - Geolocation System
The Omnisense Series 500 Cluster Geolocation System is used to determine and track the positions and motion of Cluster Nodes within a local area. The nodes form a Wireless Mesh Sensor Network. Each node periodically broadcasts messages to neighbours and by measuring the precise time of arrival (TOA) of messages transmitted by neighbours, the sophisticated Omnisense Joint Timing and Location Engine (JTLE) is able to compute the relative positions of the nodes.
At the heart of the system is the Omnisense whereBox running the omniWhere software. The whereBox receives raw measurements from the devices in the network via USB, serial port or using a TCP/IP connection over Ethernet or Wi-Fi. A high level API based on industry standard Internet protocols allows end user applications to quickly and easily access localisation and motion information about devices of interest as and when needed.
The whereBox processes measurements from the Omnisense S500 geolocation tags as well as measurements from a growing number of 3 rd party devices such as Nanotron swarm bee.
The ability to operate free of conventional rigid architectures based on traditional RTLS systems using expensive fixed anchors or access points, gives the Omnisense whereBox a unique competitive advantage.
The whereBox + S500 system is optimised for position, motion and behaviour tracking in local areas, indoors and outdoors for groups or teams of objects:
- Locating people on site
- Worker protection, health and safety
- Healthcare, dementia, post-operative care
- Sport, real-time and training
- Leisure and event management
- Emergency services, fire, police, security
- Transport logistics, fleet, yard management
- Animal tracking and welfare monitoring
- Mining and industrial site asset monitoring
