High end features such as advanced quality of care, enhanced workflow and asset management, high efficiency, and cost savings are the functions delivered by real time location systems or RTLS. These features are expected to fuel the deployment of real time location systems in the years ahead across several industries. Real time locations systems aid enterprises and organization in tracking, identifying, and managing noteworthy assets such as equipment, personnel, and tools in real time by applying a tag or badge on them.
Tags or badges use wireless technologies such as RF signals, ZigBee, WiFi, ultrasound, and infrared signals for establishing communication between tags and readers and send signals to the reader/sensors of the desired locations. These readers/sensors then establsih communication with middleware/software platforms that assess the data and associates useful insights for improving the productivity of their staff and enhance operational efficiency in an organization.

Based on technology, the segment of RFID dominated the global real time location systems in 2013 with the leading revenue in the same year. This growth can be basically attributed to the high end features of the RFID technology such as low cost of maintenance in comparison to Wi-Fi, long battery life of the tags, low cost, and high accuracy. Nevertheless, UWB and ZigBee are the emerging technologies in the market with tremendous potential owing to their high location accuracy, enhanced accuracy, and long battery life.
