SEWIO newsletter is this time fully dedicated to the latest features and must-know tools which we made for you in the latest RTLS Studio Software release.

What comes with the latest RTLS Studio 1.4.3 Release? 

In this extensive release, we reflected the most common user difficulties and worked a lot to make your RTLS deployment and installation easier; whether you are starting with the RTLS kit or are deploying a hundred devices installation.

» Full Support of 3D Orientation 

The tag IMU is one of the most advanced mobile locators for position tracking. This extraordinary tag enables you to track objects 3D. This enhanced movement tracking is possible thanks to the integration of additional sensors like Gyroscope, Magnetometer, Accelerometer and further RTLS software processing which we developed for RTLS Studio release 1.4.3.

We integrated the full support of 3D spatial orientation in the latest RTLS Studio release 1.4.3. Once you update your RTLS Studio you can easily setup your Sensmap 3D upload 3-dimensional models of objects you desire to track. Sensmap 3D enables you to upload also 3D models of rooms and static objects. The 3-dimensional visualization advances your RTLS Solution and opens up new possibilities.

How to set up 3D modes in Sensmap? Watch the video tutorial. 

What will be next?  Newly integrated sensors and features in development. 

Temperature measurement and automatic tag assignment to the floor in high buildings are features we are right now working on. As a first, we had to integrate the pressure and temperature sensors into the Tag IMU. The first part is behind us, Tag IMU is currently capable to provide the raw data stream from thermometer and pressure sensor.

» How to wirelessly configure your Tags?  

The next brand new tool helping you to set up the RTLS Platform is Wireless Tag Configuration. We developed and applied this tool into RTLS Studio release 1.4.3. to simplify the integration process. Now you don’t need any cabling to configure or reconfigure tags, nor for sensors calibration. Watch the video tutorial.


» Master Restriction Feature is supporting location precision

The Master Restriction is a new feature developed in order to help adapt RTLS to specific indoor spaces. It is especially useful for indoor spaces divided into variable rooms with shared lightweight walls. In these environments, the powerful UWB signal penetrates walls and may reach an unwanted Anchor in a bordering or even nearby room. If Anchors form distant rooms catch the Tag´s signal modified by the wall penetration, it may cause problems for positioning and decrease location precision.


How do Master restrictions work?
Use the Anchor Restriction tool, which is a new tool integrated into the Sensmap. With this tool, you can easily create a restriction zone which becomes a virtual border for the signal.  Thanks to the creation of restriction zones, you will prevent unwanted signal penetration. Applying this feature will help you to keep precision of the location system across divided spaces and in smaller rooms. ?
The Anchor restriction is embedded in Sensmap from the latest RTLS Studio Version 1.4.3, you can use it after updating you RTLS Studio.


Check new video tutorials and guides for RTLS Platform


Everything is easier with videos. We created a set of video tutorials for you, with an explanatory guide on how to use and apply new SW tools in RTLS Studio.?
