The need to identify and locate objects exists in many areas of our lives today. Whether recreationally, say in soccer, or in large production facilities, the precise detection of an object in real time can often be absolutely vital to prevent serious errors. However, existing tracking technology works only to a limited extent on moving objects or people.
This is where IndLoc® technology, developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, comes in. Using passive coils attached to people or objects, it can determine the object or person’s position, movement and work flow in three-dimensional space precisely and in real time. People can also wear these coils discreetly as wristbands (wearables). Immediate feedback from the system then allows errors to be quickly corrected and processes in a wide range of areas to be optimized.
