In 4 steps to position determination
Is there an existing WiFi infrastructure?
The basic prerequisite for WiFi positioning is a WiFi infrastructure. If this is not already available, we are also your contact here. We are happy to offer you WiFi planning with a focus on WiFi positioning.
Are the requirements for the WiFi infrastructure met?
Unlike WiFi planning based on Voice-Over-IP, for example, WiFi triangulation must be used to determine the WiFi position as accurately as possible. This means that at least three access points must always be accessible from every device at every location. If you are unsure whether your existing WiFi infrastructure meets these special requirements, we are happy to offer you a WiFi reference measurement.
Equipping your staff and assets with the right hardware
The second step is to equip your employees or your assets with the right hardware. Of course, you can also use specially configured smartphones or tablets for WiFi positioning. However, the best possible accuracy and a range of functions perfectly adapted to the respective situation (e.g. dead man's alarm) can only be guaranteed with dedicated hardware.
Commissioning the WiFi positioning system and further procedure
Once all the necessary requirements have been met, you can put your WiFi positioning system into operation. Now you are able to locate employees and other persons as well as your assets in real time and to record and evaluate other data such as bottlenecks in production halls. These analyses can provide you with valuable information for internal process optimisation.
