Redpoint Positioning

Redpoint Positioning has developed patented, game-changing technology that combines the connectivity of the Internet of Things (IoT) with a powerful, real-time location system (RTLS) to produce the Internet of Moving Things (IoMvT)™.

The IoMvT provides unprecedented visibility into how things are moving in real-time, empowering you with actionable data to improve safety, efficiency, and productivity and preparing you to scale for future growth.

Redpoint is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts with offices in Beijing, China and Kharkiv, Ukraine.

REDPOINT RTLS ADVANTAGES

While other RTLS products use technologies that compromise accuracy, scalability, and cost, Redpoint Positioning’s system is based on Ultra-Wideband (UWB) communication which is known to provide excellent accuracy. Our patented technology has solved the scale and price challenges of UWB, delivering the highest value and performance in a variety of indoor environments.

Accurate: Real-time location uses Ultra-Wideband (UWB) and other sensors and maintains accuracy in the most complex environments

Fast: Very low latency means quick response times and more control for mission critical applications, even when the server is disconnected

Scalable: Enables large and scalable coverage with unlimited tag capacity

Connected: Anchors form a mesh network, equipment and people stay connected

Open: Easy integration with third-party applications and custom hardware

APPLICATIONS

Safety
Redpoint’s IoMvT helps industrial workplace managers decrease the risk of costly accidents with collision warnings and partners with vehicle manufacturers to make active collision avoidance possible. By geo-fencing zones and connecting zones to vehicles and personnel, safety hazards can be managed. Vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-pedestrian, and vehicle-to-asset damage can be reduced, and historical data is tracked to report on safety metrics and analyze incidents. Redpoint’s system is also applicable for the purpose of enforcing social distancing, cleaning protocols, and contact tracing related to coronavirus and other health hazards.

Efficiency
With full visibility to the workplace, personnel, and equipment, managers can understand whether equipment is being used or has additional capacity. See whether high-use materials are in prime locations in the facility or re-locate them for a streamlined process. In addition, location-based task assignment or dispatch cuts down the response time and reduces work fatigue as your employees walk less during a shift.

Productivity
Redpoint provides data that enables managers to see all aspects of their operations, empowering them to make decisions that optimize productivity for future growth. See attendance, activity time, and distance travelled. View zone information and real-time activity reports. Redpoint’s high update rate (>20Hz) and zero latency solution means managers will always have the most up-to-date, accurate data.

PRODUCTS

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

Redpoint’s real-time location system (RTLS) consists of four key elements: WIN anchors, location tags, an RTLS server, and a web portal.

The wireless infrastructure network (WIN) anchors form a virtual, wireless, geofenced environment. Location tags attached to important objects, vehicles, or personnel generate their locations in real-time. The RTLS server tracks and identifies these objects, vehicles, or personnel and issues specific instructions to them with its built-in intelligence. The application web portal (SiteWise) visualizes their locations in a real-time view and historical view.

The system is powerful, versatile, and highly configurable, enabling you to build complete solutions to track the movement of hundreds of objects, define their access parameters, and improve workflow.

Redpoint’s RTLS also integrates with existing or third-party systems for more operational efficiency. For those with proprietary or specialized applications, it is easy to develop packaging to enclose a tag’s core electronics. For reporting on other types of events, you can use our public APIs to monitor the state of other sensors and inputs.
