Various positioning systems are now used in all sectors of the economy. By locating and tracking facilities, companies are able to monitor people and machinery, ensure process safety and improve business efficiency.
UWB (Ultra-Wide Band) is a wireless ultra-broadband data transmission technology that provides:
maintenance of high data transfer rates;
object positioning with an accuracy of 2 cm;
high level of information security;
significant reducing of energy consumption;
The key benefit of the technology is the high-speed data transmission via radio channel.UWB technology is based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard, which is used to combine sensors and actuators into a single wireless network. The IEEE 802.15.4z version of this standard is designed to significantly expand the range of UWB applications in the near future.

Lean Manufacturing: Basics and Outcome
The concept of Lean Manufacturing is based on the ideas of Toyota car manufacturing system. The key principles of lean manufacturing are reduction of all costs, optimization of production; involving employees in the process of enhancing enterprise efficiency. Virtually, implementation of lean manufacturing can boost labor productivity by up to 400% during the first year. Using even one of its principles can increase the efficiency of the enterprise by 30-50%.
In the new version of RealTrac, our team has implemented a number of significant changes, including innovative ones.Among them: 3D positioning, a single interface for displaying positioning within the premises and in open areas, SCADA logic and a new report designer.
