Unique Technology

Quuppa Intelligent Locating System™ uses a proprietary technology based on Bluetooth Low Energy, unique Angle-of-Arrival signal processing method, and advanced positioning algorithms.

Positioning principle

Quuppa system uses advanced antennas, the Locators, to measure the direction (Angle-of-Arrival) of a radio signal transmitted by a Tag. The result is sent to Quuppa Positioning Engine, which uses advanced algorithms to compute the Tag's position and creates outputs in various formats.

The Angle-of-Arrival method enables Quuppa system to determine accurate 2D position using only one Locator. With two Locators, the system is able to compute accurate 3D position.

In practice, the Tag is usually visible to several Locators, allowing for continuous positioning and substantially improving the accuracy and reliability.

BLE – the Industry Standard

Quuppa Intelligent Locating System™ is based on Bluetooth Low Energy (also known as BLE, Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth Smart), which has quickly become the industry standard for wireless personal area network technology. It gives Quuppa system several advantages, including long Tag battery lifetime, compatibility with standard mobile devices, and the ability to carry sensor data alongside the positioning data.

Quuppa positioning principle: The Locators are measuring the direction (Angle-of-Arrival) of a radio signal transmitted by a Tag and sending the data to Quuppa Positioning Engine, which uses advanced algorithms to compute the Tag's position and creates outputs in various formats. Quuppa system provides accurate 2D position with just one Locator. With two Locators, Quuppa system can provide accurate 3D positioning.

The Best Solution for You

The Real-time Locating System (RTLS) market is still relatively new, and there are many different technologies, methods, ideas, and their combinations available. Add in a lot of hype and some overpromises, and the scene is getting pretty confusing.

We at Quuppa have been developing our own technology for a decade and tested quite a few other solutions along the way. And our customers have been testing a few dozens more. Our customers want their RTLS platform to be Accurate, Real-time, Reliable, Scalable, Versatile, Easy to use and integrate, and Affordable. And it should deliver what is promised. Also, they value our customer support and the close cooperation we do with our partners.

If this is what you are looking for, contact us and let's see if Quuppa would be the best solution for your needs.
