Location Services APIs¶
What prerequisites are required for Location Intelligence?¶
An Enlighted lighting system designed to meet Enlighted IoT design guidelines running on a cloud-based Energy Manager. The facility must be equipped with the latest Gen 5 sensor hardware. Location Intelligence is powered by AWS using off-the-shelf asset and badge tags with BLE capabilities to communicate with Enlighted sensors.
How accurate is Location Intelligence?¶
There is no indoor location system that can provide 100% accuracy, 100% of the time due to physics and technology constraints. Multiple factors affect the performance of the BRI system, such as: sensor density, building material composition, number of tags actively in use in each area, and RF interference.
The room-level accuracy can increase to above 98% with 10-15s delay when rooms are well defined and have solid walls. The RF permeability of building materials, zone size and sensor density all have an impact on room-level accuracy. Unlike other RTLS systems which may experience degraded performance with thicker building materials, our machine-learning based algorithm with BLE fingerprinting benefits from solid walls. Reduced RF permeability helps identify the room with higher certainty.
Is historical location data available?¶
Both live time and one year of historical data are available on the Location Intelligence application, BlueGPS. Location Intelligence APIs ingested by third-party software provide live data only.
