Fine-Range, Long-Range Positioning Intelligence
danalto’s distributed IoT platform, CardinalTM, has the ability to passively track a device’s location across wide open spaces between anchor points. Radio signals are analyzed to determine location. danalto provides highly accurate location over large distances with little infrastructure and at a lower cost than traditional technologies like GPS, BLE, UWB, or WiFi.
Two-way ranging and advanced ranging are two techniques used to uncover the device’s location. danalto offers these positioning intelligence services as part of our solution set, and have seen use cases in palette tracking for better operations, warehouse vehicle tracking for optimized use, and high-value asset and equipment tracking in large storage yards or parking lots to reduce time-to-find.
danalto’s fine-range, long-range positioning intelligence service, otherwise known as FiLoTM, utilizes LoRa® @ 2.4 GHz as the core technology and can achieve accuracies of 5-10m over 5+ km area with tags that operate at ultra low power and last for 5+ years.
LoRa® 2.4GHz Technology Characteristics
Unlike traditional tracking technologies, danalto offers positioning intelligence services for both large, open environments and industrial settings.
GPS is widely deployed, however, it is unable to provide location data for assets under covered areas or indoors. GPS is also known to require frequent battery replacements and separate, backhaul data networks, both of which drive up operational costs.
Other solutions such as Bluetooth and WiFi are commonly used within buildings and in more refined locations. This is due to their limited range and poor accuracy out of doors, as well as their need for a dense network infrastructure.
danalto’s tracking solution utilizes a new technology which brings the best features of these solutions together. With LoRa® 2.4 GHz, FiLoTM is able to achieve high-accuracy positioning intelligence services across wide open spaces, with lower power and infrastructure requirements.
Illustrated in the chart above, the danalto tracking solution is currently the only solution offering high-position accuracy (5m) with relatively low network infrastructure/anchor density requirements, while fitting both open and industrial settings.
