Ubisense Introduces New Product, Ubisense Presence, New Monitoring and Telemetry Features Enhancing Flexibility of World-Leading Precise Real-time Location System


Cambridge, UK, May 12 2009 - Ubisense the world leading developer of precise real-time location systems, adds to its award winning track record of innovation with the introduction of the world’s first system to combine complementary indoor/outdoor positioning technologies with presence to meet the demands of its largest customers. This will allow customers to get a complete end to end view with a single tag.

Wilfried Naumann, Managing Director of Ubisense Partner VA Berlin, says, “this unique combination offered by Ubisense makes a compelling case for the use of the system in our large customer base of bus and tram authorities across the World. We expect to install hundreds of the new system”

Ubisense Presence works with the Ubisense Platform software and standard Ubisense dual-mode 2.4GHz/UWB tags and sensors to provide a spectrum of tagging and location options from basic tag-to-sensor association and telemetry, through coarse-grained location using 2.4GHz RF, to precise real-time location using UWB.

These options can be freely mixed on a single site, optimizing cost-effectiveness by allowing customers to tune infrastructure to their requirements: at one extreme a single sensor can support basic presence and telemetry over an area of more than half a million square feet (50000m2), and at the other a six-sensor cell covering sixty thousand square feet (6000m2) can locate tags in real time with errors of less than six inches (15cm). The new options also help customers with specialized problems, such as detecting when a bus leaves its depot, when a security tag is placed in a metal bag, or when a car drives through a road junction.

Ubisense Presence has already been through end-user production tests and is already in use for applications as diverse as transit depot management, smart exhibitions and worker safety in industrial plants.

“Our customers love the accuracy and real-time response of Ubisense and gave us positive feedback that they needed additional flexibility and more cost options. So we came up with Ubisense Presence.” says Richard Green, Ubisense CEO. “Ubisense is already established as the world’s most accurate and responsive RTLS, and this makes us the world’s most flexible RTLS too.”
