Time-based Radio Location

Technologies based on measuring the duration of a signal between transmitters and receivers offer a wide range of uses and precision depending on the specific application. Global location can be carried out with cutting-edge GNSS receivers that operate with multiple satellite systems (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS). Technologies such as pseudolites or RedFIR® (infrared) supply even more precise location services.

Typical Applications:

Sport (soccer)

Construction logistics  (GPS, Galileo)

Road construction

Driver assistance systems

Freight car tracking
