Precise UWB-based real time location system

KIO is a precise real time location system (RTLS) for tracking any object in 2D or 3D space. Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology enables to micro-position objects through obstructions like concrete walls. The technology also works in non-line-of-sight conditions and both indoors and outdoors.

KIO RTLS is suitable for tracking a single object or for building large-scale infrastructures for simultaneous real time positioning of hundreds of objects.

KIO RTLS is utilising the UWB chip produced by Decawave. The communication channel enables to build applications with both connectivity and micro-positioning requirements.

KIO was one of the top 10 promising IoT technologies in 2014 and it has since been deployed across the globe.

KIO is FCC and CE certified, suitable for customisation for customer applications.

KIO Evaluation Kit

is a plug and play system for verification and testing. KIO can also be configured to specific customer requirements. The standard open API ensures smooth integration into any proprietary system.

It is the most accurate and affordable RTLS technology on the market with applications in more than 10 industries e.g. warehousing, occupational safety, sports etc.
