The Ubisense Industrial Tag is a small, rugged device that is intended to be attached to assets and allows them to be located to an accuracy of 15cm* in 3D in real time.
It is specifically designed for use in industrial sites where harsh environmental conditions will be encountered. In addition to its tracking capabilities, it includes additional features such as three LEDs for easy status identification, a motion detector to instantly activate a stationary tag and a push button to trigger events.

Accurate LocationThe tag transmits ultra-wideband (UWB) radio pulses which can be used by the Ubisense location system to find its position to within 15cm* in 3D. By using UWB, the system’s accuracy is maintained even in cluttered, multipath-rich indoor environments. The Ubisense UWB location system is the only one capable of measuring both Angle-of-Arrival (AoA) and Time-Difference-of-Arrival (TDoA) of the tag’s signals, enabling it to generate accurate 3D tracking information even when only two sensors can detect the tag.
Two-way CommunicationUbisense tags employ a unique dual-radio architecture – in addition to the one-way UWB radio used for tracking, tags have a conventional bi-directional 2.4GHz radio for control and telemetry. The two-way communication capability allows the Ubisense system to dynamically manage the tag’s update rate, flash the tag’s LEDs, report battery status and button presses, and wirelessly reprogram the tag to enable new features.
Flexible Update RatesThe Ubisense software platform allows the tag’s update rate to be dynamically and automatically varied depending on tag activity. If the tag is moving quickly, a high update rate can be assigned for best tracking; if it is moving slowly the update can be reduced for best battery lifetime. When stationary, tags sleep to conserve power, an inbuilt motion detector ensures the tag transmits again as soon as it is moved.
User Interaction FeaturesThe tag has a button to provide context-sensitive input to interactive systems. Applications can use the tag’s location at the time the button was pressed to determine what action should be taken in response – for example, activating an item of machinery when the button is pressed, but only if the user is in a safe location. The application can also send feedback to the user via the tag LEDs that the application received the service request.
Rugged and AdaptableThe Industrial Tag is designed to be rugged for use in harsh industrial environments. It is mechanically robust, dust- and water-resistant, and can be securely mounted using a variety of attachment mechanisms.
Long Battery LifeThe low current consumption and power management techniques result in long battery lifetimes. Status reports and alerts make maintenance easy and batteries are technician-replaceable. In a typical application, where a tag with an C-size lithium battery is used to continuously locate an asset once every second-and-a-half, it has an expected lifetime of over six years.
