The Quuppa system is based on Bluetooth Low Energy technology, which provides several advantages – including long Tag battery lifetime, compatibility with mobile devices and the ability to carry sensor data, alongside positioning data. Grasping the versatility of Bluetooth is essential for understanding how to use the technology in advanced location-based applications. Read more about the versatility of Bluetooth technology here.
The unique insight behind the Quuppa system is combining Bluetooth wireless technology with Direction Finding signal processing methodology, enabling the superior positioning accuracy compared to solutions that are based on Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI). Since the introduction of Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth Low Energy), which includes location-oriented specific profiles, Bluetooth technologies have become very valuable for location-based applications. The technology is well suited to Angular-based measurement methods for Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS).
The Bluetooth technology and Direction Finding methodology are freely available for anyone. However, turning these building blocks into a reliable and scalable solution is not a trivial task. What makes Quuppa truly unique are the advanced positioning algorithms developed by our founding team over the course of more than 15 years.
