Original Press Release:

Advantech’s LEO-L UWB Real-time Location System Enables High-precision Tracking of Vehicles, Personnel and Assets

Taipei, Taiwan, May 5, 2020 – Advantech, a leading provider of industrial computing platforms, is pleased to announce the LEO-L04 ultra-wideband (UWB) real-time location system aimed at personnel and asset tracking for industrial applications. Accurate within 30 cm, LEO-L04 enables high-precision, real-time tracking for up to 1,000 LEO-04 tags via a USM-L42 receiver. Designed for cargo management and workforce monitoring, a LEO-L04 tag transmits 3 ~ 6 GHz center frequency impulse signals within a 75 m range. Featuring a low-power sleep mode battery design, this system maintains one full year of tag operation to accommodate long-term location management. LEO-L04 UWB is an excellent choice for industrial warehouse, factory, and human resource applications that require precise frequently-updated location monitoring.

One-Step Detection Within 30 cm Improves Safety and Security

LEO-L04 tags feature highly precise location tracking, facilitating detection within 30 cm. Data on vehicle, asset, and personnel movement is collected utilizing trajectory tracking and enabling real-time management. Through precise tracking, LEO-L04 increases workplace safety and security by allowing personnel and assets to be monitored within a defined environment. Advantech’s solution can help minimize public health risks by recording personnel movement and contact via a web server.

1,000 UWB Tags Per Server Enable Big Data Collection

Advantech’s tracking system accommodates 1,000 tags within a maximum range of 75 m. The combination of accurate location tracking and long-range utilization enables users to easily gather big data for business insights. Likewise, UWB tags are a low-power technology with a fast radio frequency (RF) of 3 ~ 6 GHz received by USM-L04. UWB tags and receivers function in a broad temperature range (-20 ~ 55 °C/-4 ~ 131 °F), making them suitable for diverse industrial environments and applications.
