  • Combines Bluetooth 5.1 technology with an optimized antenna configuration for high precision without sacrificing power efficiency
  • Scales easily with installation growth to accommodate expanding needs
  • Offers future-proofing with OTA (over-the-air) software updates for continuous feature enhancements

It can be customized to meet specific application needs, consisting of a positioning middleware (u-locateHub), a positioning engine (u-locateEngine), anchor points (u-locateAnchor), and tags (u-locateTag). It can also be integrated with GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) products from u-blox to ensure seamless indoor and outdoor localization. It adheres to the omlox global interoperability standard, featuring a well-documented API platform that supports integration with multiple vendor solutions. By joining omlox, u-blox underscores its commitment to a growing ecosystem and the global interoperability of positioning solutions.

With u-locate, the company leverages its expertise in wireless connectivity and positioning technologies to meet the increasing demand for high-performance positioning systems. By optimizing inventory management and material and people flows, u-blox reduces operational costs and maximizes sustainability.

Dr. Matthias Joest, Committee leader for omlox, stated, “We are delighted that u-blox is joining the omlox ecosystem with its new RTLS solution, u-locate. omlox is the world’s first locating standard, offering flexible solutions that reduce integration costs and ensure future-proof setups. Having u-blox, a recognized leader in locating technologies, as a member and supporter of omlox, greatly benefits our fast-growing ecosystem.”
