Key findings

In the opinion of Bloor Research the following represent the
key facts of which prospective users should be aware:

  • There is no need to install new networks for this solution;
    it uses existing network architectures that most
    organisations will have in place; a really good thing in
    keeping the costs down.
  • Ubisense have developed as part of their R&D a number of
    demonstrable scenarios which capture the imagination
    and take the viewer into seeing new possibilities for the
    use of RFID and RTLS solutions. This shows the
    innovativeness and agility of the company.
  • The accuracy of the read distance is impressive when
    compared to many rival WiFi based RTLS solutions. So, if
    accuracy of location is important then Ubisense is
    certainly a product to consider.
  • From the demonstrations that Bloor saw the developer
    tool appears easy to use and the simulator is impressive;
    although not quite to same degree as GlobeRanger’s
  • The relationship with Microsoft could be very interesting.
    At present Ubisense are the only RTLS solution that
    interfaces with the Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 RFID
    components. This opens great opportunities of working
    with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and
    machine tool vendors whose products are based on the
    Microsoft Windows platform.

The bottom line

The Ubisense RTLS solution is very impressive.
Organisations looking at RTLS should consider the
significantly higher accuracy and reliability that Ultra Wide
Band (UWB) can provide for a modest additional investment
over other solutions. Bloor strongly suggests that
Ubisense’s product should be on the evaluation lists of
prospective RTLS buyers.
