High-accuracy Location Tracking & Analytics Solution

Ubudu offers the first end-to-end RTLS solution that enables universal tracking across a complex physical environment and is cost and energy efficient.

Network-based positioning

Network-based positioning

For tracking a large number of assets in real time without requiring interaction. uTags are attached to assets or held by persons. They emit a radio signal which is detected by permanently installed uAnchors. The ubudu Location Engine, as the name suggests, receives the data and computes the positions. It offers real-time visualisation, analysis and integration with business processes.

Radio technologies :
Bluetooth 5 (BLE) for 1-3 m accuracy, or Ultra-Wideband (UWB) for 10-30 cm accuracy.

Tag-based positioning

For real-time tracking and proximity interactions using lightweight infrastructures. uTags are attached to moving assets or held by people. They receive a radio signal emitted by uAnchors. uTags compute the position and send the data to ubudu Location Engine & Analytics, which enables real-time visualisation, analysis and integration with business processes. In this case, mobile apps can also be used as uTags.

Radio technologies

Bluetooth Low Energy

Radio technology that has become the de factor standard for smartphones and IoT communications. BLE is characterized by low power consumption and low costs, with billions of chips already delivered.

Bluetooth 5 offers up to 200m range, increased security and bandwidth, all contributing to the improvement of geolocation applications.

Bluetooth Mesh is another key turn specification that was released in 2017 and enables bidirectional communication between sensors and tags.

Ultra Wideband

Very short impulse transmission with strong rises and drops, make starting and stopping the signals naturally easier to measure.

The distance between two UWB devices can be measured precisely by measuring the time it takes for a radio wave to pass the two devices. It provides a much more precise distance measurement than estimating the signal strength, with an accuracy down to a few centimeters.

UWB signals retain their integrity and structure, even with noise and multipath effects.

Real-time tracking

Real-time tracking

Visualise your assets' real-time positions on your map. Assets can be classified by model, name or specific ID.
Know in real-time how many assets are in each zone and see average time spent.

Geofencing

Geofencing

Geofencing rules can be defined in ubudu Location Analytics to trigger proximity-based automation on smartphones, servers or machines.

Interactions are recorded on the server and displayed in analytics dashboards.

Analytics Dashboard

Analytics Dashboard

ubudu Location Analytics Dashboard includes a range of data visualisations, including heat maps, 20+ different charts and predictive analysis using AI.

Infrastucture management

Infrastucture management

The positions and configurations of the uAnchors are stored and managed in the ubudu Location Engine enabling easy maintenance and automatic alerts when batteries of uTags are low.

API

API

All real-time position data is collected and indicated on the ubudu Location Analytics. Ubudu provides an API and ready-made connectors to use this data in business process or data visualisation software.

Enterprise deployment

Easy to install

Ubudu comes with a detailed setup guide and tools that make on-site installation easy even for non-technical staff.

The core idea is to automate as many things as possible on the server side and minimize external dependencies. This stems from our own experience, as we have already deployed in 3000+ venues.

Highly secured

Ubudu uses different levels of security to ensure data security for both hardware and software components.

Access to the device configuration is only possible via button or password. Transmitted data is encrypted to prevent phishing. Servers are protected in our data centres to prevent intrusion, wrong access or misuse of data.

Low maintenance

The Ubudu infrastructure uses low-energy devices with autonomy of several years, which are monitored by rugged mechanisms (low battery level or missing sensor warnings).

This minimizes the maintenance effort for large and long-term deployments.
