Real-time locating systems (RTLS) provide the ability to automatically identify and track the location of objects and people in real time, predominately within a building or specific area.

There are a variety of tags available which can be fixed to an object or alternatively worn by people for example on a wrist tag and lanyard.

Fixed readers or WLAN access points then receive signals from the tags to pin point its location.
