Location Tracking System for Building World-Class Products and Services
Eliko’s unique AP-TWR solution enables get up to 8x more data points with each localization making it the most accurate UWB solution on the market.
The Eliko positioning system can achieve a tracking accuracy up to 5 centimetres / 2 inches. However, most of our customers require 30 cm or sub-1 metre accuracy. The system is based on ultra-wideband technology. At least 10x more accurate compared to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
Eliko RTLS provides unprecedented stability and reliability of even raw coordinate data. We have developed our core localisation software over the course of 10 years while piloting in real environments. Additionally, UWB itself has superior performance in multipath and reflections, penetrates obstacles and has no interference issues with other radio waves.
Real-time location tracking
Track anything from forklifts to high-speed sports. The location tracking system offers update rates of up to 75 Hz (times per second) and can fulfill the low-latency requirements for AR/VR applications.
Our unique tracking system is also well suited to safety applications demanding low latency. You can warn people before they are in danger with 10-ms notifications sent over ultra-wideband.
Tailored to your needs
Flexibility is a key to building tracking solutions in complex environements. Eliko RTLS supports different accuracy levels, refresh rates, communication modes and integration requirements. You can seamlessly combine different requirements in the same tracking area.
Eliko’s unique AP-TWR method enables a variety of special configurations that significantly bring down the system and installation costs for our customers.

How to optimise intralogistics with real-time forklift tracking
Read how Bosch developed a useful tool with Eliko’s UWB indoor positioning system for planning and continuously improving and optimising its internal logistics.
We studied several real-time tracking systems with different technologies and, in the end, we decided to implement the UWB location tracking technology from Eliko. For us, it had the best location tracking results, the easiest configuration and the best cost-efficiency ratio.
Eliko were a pleasure to work with. They were proactively supportive and always conscious of our needs. Their responsiveness despite the time zone difference of their headquarters made a huge difference in our ability to painlessly implement their technology. Their product is exceptional, but their commitment to supporting our work was what really allowed our experiences to shine.
We did tests with Eliko’s indoor positioning system and compared it with other similar solutions on the market. Based on our test results we are confident in recommending the two-way ranging based Eliko RTLS location tracking solution as a robust UWB solution.
Our main challenge before using the ultra-wideband tracking system was tracking in darkness to project the lighting precisely on the dancer. The infrared systems for artists on stage can easily get confused when we need to track more than one target, so we were searching for something not visual or infrared. We liked that Eliko’s UWB-based location tracking technology had a very high refresh rate and was very accurate.

Frequently asked questions
Anchors are static reference devices that are placed around the tracking area. Anchors are installed on the walls, ceiling or other support structures. They enable you to measure the distance from a tag to calculate its location coordinates.
In general, for 2D positioning, the minimum number of anchors needed is 3. However, we recommend 4 anchors for additional reliability. For 3D positioning, at least 6 anchors are required.
With 4 anchors you can cover about 50×50 m (~2500 m2) in ideal conditions. Ideal conditions almost never occur in real-life. For industrial applications on average 4 anchors can cover 500-1000 m2. So a grid of between 20×20 and 35×35 is common.
The number of anchors you need to cover the tracking area heavily depends on the environment and the use case. The environment means how many obstacles are in the area for radio performance. The use case determines the required coordinate accuracy & reliability. Providing check-point tracking requires much less anchors compared to safety applications.

Like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, ultra-wideband (UWB) is a short-range, wireless communication protocol that operates through radio waves. But unlike its counterparts, it operates at very high frequencies — a broad spectrum of GHz frequencies — and can be used to capture highly accurate data.
For a deep dive into UWB and why it’s great for positioning, read our blog post – The Story Behind Ultra-Wideband Technology and Indoor Positioning
You can choose between several data output formats depending on what information is required. For example, you can request information about coordinates, distance, battery status and timestamps. Ask for more features and options for your particular case from our sales team at email@example.com.
