SEWIO UWB Real-Time Location System (RTLS)
What is RTLS?
Sewio’s real-time location system (RTLS) based on UWB consists of hardware and software that together form an all-in-one platform serving multiple indoor tracking use cases – ranging from asset tracking, material flow to people tracking for safety reasons.
Sewio UWB RTLS’s Benefits
The SEWIO RTLS Platform’s Architecture
The main functional blocks of the RTLS Platform are defined by the corresponding platform layers. At the Hardware Layer, data transmitted as UWB signals is generated. The UWB signal from the Hardware Layer is processed by the Location Layer where the position is calculated and filtered. The Data Layer is responsible for location data storage and its representation for further visualization and analysis. At the Service Layer, the RTLS Platform offers tools to control and optimize the system’s performance. The real-time position data and analytics data are provided in the Visualization Layer.
The RTLS Platform’s API is used by multiple apps delivered by Sewio partners and can also be easily leveraged for your own location-driven project or software. The top layer includes software tools that ensure success of your real-time location tracking project – the RTLS Planner and Player.

UWB RTLS Software
RTLS Planner streamlines the project design phase by helping to find the best location and distribution of the anchors and their types to meet superior accuracy while keeping the cost low.
RTLS Player not only enables the replaying of data to evaluate system performance but also the remote updating of the settings to optimize the performance.

SEWIO RTLS Communication
The Sewio indoor tracking system uses ultra-wideband technology and an ultra-wideband (UWB) spectrum to provide precise positioning. These are the three communication steps:
- To be tracked, the entity is equipped with a tag that sends out a UWB signal to anchors for its localization.
- The anchors use UWB signals to synchronize among themselves.
- Lastly, the data gathered by the anchors is sent to the RTLS Server for calculating the precise position of the tagged entity – in most projects, this is done via Ethernet cables, but it can be also sent wirelessly via Wi-Fi.
The Quickest Way to Start with Indoor Tracking: The UWB RTLS Kit
Test drive your digitalization real-time location project with our RTLS UWB Starter Kit. It has all the components and software you need to build a proof of technology or small pilot project. The plug-and-play RTLS UWB TDoA Kit can be set up easily in less than one hour and is fully backed up by our guides, video tutorials and documentation. All the contents of the kit, including the software license, can later be reused within your full project – you just need to add more anchors and tags to scale your area coverage and the number of tracked objects.
Delivery within one week, installation in one hour
Content fully reusable in your actual project
Scalability of both the area coverage and number of tracked objects
Have any questions?
Sewio has provided us with a system that can identify and locate vehicles and people reliably. The technologies we had used up until now had always failed. The high quality of detection and positioning accuracy makes the Sewio solution very suitable in environments with high-security needs. In the world of access control and security, in which our company operates, it is vital to have reliable information. Sewio has a configurable platform that guarantees results at the highest levels. A final aspect of primary importance is the availability and competency of the assistance service provided by Sewio during the design and configuration of the system, with competent and professional technicians.”
