Real-time localisation (RTLS)

Real-time locating systems (RTLS) make it possible to track the location of objects and new applications such as automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) in real time. But locating solutions are often offered proprietarily as a closed system and can therefore not be used in an interoperable way with other solutions. But not with TRUMPF: With our support, integrators or infrastructure providers can offer flexible complete solutions for real-time location, based on omlox, the world's first open location standard. With our future-proof system infrastructure, we make localisation easy and cost-effective within the omlox core zone. Including hardware, software, services and consulting.

Our products

TRUMPF core zone software

The TRUMPF core zone software generates RTLS positioning data from UWB communication between permanently installed satellites and mobile tags. Since the TRUMPF core zone is compatible with both the omlox air-interface and the omlox hub API, it facilitates complete interoperability with other omlox-compatible apps and tags.

Satellites / Printed Circuit Board / Blueprint

The core zone satellites enable infrastructure-based localisation of UWB tracking. These are installed on the ceiling or the wall, for example. Depending on the case, the printed circuit board or its blueprint can also be used along with the complete satellites with housing. The UWB solution can thus also be integrated into existing products.

Certified Locating Hardware

Localisation information of UWB-capable devices, such as tags, automated guided vehicle systems or sensors, is located in a standardised coordinate system. TRUMPF provides not only complete tags but also their electronics (printed circuit boards) and development blueprint.

Integration consulting

TRUMPF supports integrators and infrastructure providers in developing omlox-compatible RTLS solutions. We apply our expertise in a targeted way and consult integrators and infrastructure providers on the development of their end user solution. We are also by your side for both the development of RTLS Use Cases and the setup of service, sales structure and end user training.

What is omlox?

omlox is the world's first open localisation standard which aims to be able to implement flexible real-time locating solutions with elements from various manufacturers, without requiring any project planning. omlox defines interfaces for omlox core zone and omlox hub: using these technologies, UWB-based (ultra-wideband) devices from different manufacturers can be located in one localisation zone, and location information of complementary localisation technologies can be mapped holistically.

What are the advantages of the open omlox standard?

The world's first localisation standard

omlox is part of the Profibus user organisation, a registered association with more than 1600 members. TRUMPF and many more independent partners from Europe, the USA and Asia are continuing to drive the new standard for industrial location technologies forward, developing, promoting and adapting it.

Interoperable and open

The localisation solution is offered as an open system, so it can be combined interoperably with omlox-compatible apps or mobile tags from partners or competitors.

No obligation to the manufacturer

If the customer has decided on one RTLS provider, they are often limited to only choosing their solutions. This is not the case with the omlox standard.

Less development work required

Because of the individually programmed interfaces, integrating a solution from a third-party provider is often expensive. But not with our open standard.

For our customers in the automotive and manufacturing industries, we are a long-standing partner in digitalisation for networked production and logistics. TRUMPF's omlox core zone infrastructure can be seamlessly combined with our 5G campus networks and offers real added value for our customers. Together with TRUMPF, we can offer the most flexible, highly precise and extremely robust localisation solution from a single source.
