CODEL RTLS SOLUTIONS
Codel RTLS solution is a precise tracking and positioning framework to provide highly accurate localization of objects in real-time. The system is based on multiple satellite configurations which enable accurate micro-positioning in almost all spaces.
The system can work with a few satellites and tags only, but it is flexible enough to be upgraded to track hundreds of tags from warehouses to almost any industrial production environment.
Codel's proprietary software platform has been created during 30 years' experience in production-oriented industrial systems to give customers cutting edge solutions that propel their businesses to hitherto unreachable levels.
With Codel RTLS solution you can bridge physical assets and
business systems (various ERP, HRM, MES, WMS and similar).
The Codel RTLS framework can serve any other system sending
exact and real-time information by means of various communication
Real Time Location Services
RTLS or indoor positioning systems (IPS) can be simply described as indoor GPS used for indoor tracking, locating and monitoring the activity of people and movements of things. With RTLS technology location data is received from devices (location satellites) attached to ceilings or walls and transmitted via UWB through active asset tags mounted on equipment and wearables for people (tags or badges). The location data is then accessed in a variety of ways, including via various program interfaces (API), to different programme modules in production and via the business network. Codel RTLS solution is based on the latest RFID technology (UWB) and provides the most precise positions for tracking assets. Usage of RTLS will give you additional real-time data which demonstrably delivers significant return of investment (ROI).
Real-time location system (RTLS) is a critical part of any modern manufacturing
quality assurance solution. Detecting the precise location of
assets enables monitoring of the execution of every single operation on
the assembly line.
• get you full visibility of your material handling processes
• improve production flow
• reduce supply chain inefficiency
• cut production downtime challenges and eliminate bottlenecks
• reduce work in process inventory
• give you visual projection in real-time
• give you advanced analytics for future process improvements
Codel RTLS solution is suitable for:
• almost any kind of production
• harsh environments
• complex production lines and processes
With the implementation of RTLS solution in your warehousing
and logistics processes you will be able to:
• reduce human errors
• optimize usage and space
• support special material requirements
• compress the supply chain
• optimize the logistics processes, based on collated software
Codel RTLS system is suitable for:
• large deployment (27.000 m2 and more) in many challenging
environments (steel, liquids)
• sub-pallet accuracy in real-time
• back-end integration with WMS
• real-time location for IIoT
• position data in 3D
Complete oversight of what is going on in your warehouse in
real-time with history.
A foundation for LEAN and Six Sigma is the knowledge of
where everything is. With the Codel RTLS solution, you will
have real-time information on the location of your most
valuable assets, with a history of movement and usage, to
inform future decision making nd planning of your
RTLS will help you to:
• locate and monitor equipment, parts, and products quickly
• gather data on where assets are in your organisation
• track down critical assets
• oversee where a particular asset is or has been e.g. for
The Codel RTLS system is ideal for AGV real-time location tracking
and it provides unique insights into the logistics and warehousing
With the help of RTLS, you can:
• create the most optimal work routes and processes for people,
goods and machinery
• calculate the time lost on non-productive tasks
• build anti-collision systems to prevent workplace accidents
• build no-go zones or ensure that autonomous devices and
people can work safely together
• build efficient evacuation systems for hazardous environments
How Does It Work?
MULTI-TAG TRACKINGDeploying a network of anchors enables the tracking of a large number of tags throughout large places. The Multi-Tag Tracking configuration, (3D RTLS) is a server-based acquisition system capable of collecting location information about every tag in the monitored space.
GPS-LIKE POSITIONINGGPS-like Positioning relies on the same location network infrastructure as the Multi-Tag Tracking configuration. A noticeable difference, however, is that GPS-like Positioning is device-centric meaning that the position of a device is computed by the device itself which simply analyzes the UWB synchronization signals used by the location network. With a time-based measurement almost as precise as an atomic clock our location network matches the efficiency of the fleet of GPS satellites in orbit. Our tags run algorithms similar to GPS receivers and because they just receive and never transmit there can be a vast number of them in operation.
Which Components Are Required?
ANCHORTo use CODEL RTLS a network of anchors is required following the GPS system rules. Installed in any customer's warehouse or production environment the anchors collect localization data to have exact information about objects of interest. position of a device is computed by the device itself which simply analyzes the UWB synchronization signals used by the location network. With a time-based measurement almost as precise as an atomic clock our location network matches the efficiency of the fleet of GPS satellites in orbit. Our tags run algorithms similar to GPS receivers and because they just receive and never transmit there can be a vast number of them in operation.
TAGThe tags are mobile transceiver units. Due to their compact dimensions and various mounting options the tags can be easily attached to moving objects such as industrial trucks, pallets and packages, shopping carts, shopping baskets or be worn from persons.
