The standardized omlox interfaces create an open RTLS ecosystem
Location data allows you to collect insights into activities, processes and offer huge potential to develop more efficient operations. Real-time locating solutions are therefore critical for Smart Factories, Digital Transformation, and Industry 4.0.
The only issue: Most of the solutions are propriety, creating vendor lock-ins due to an unflexible set-up. omlox changes all that: The world's first open localization standard aims to implement flexible real-time locating solutions with elements from different manufacturers: Mix & match your individual RTLS!
omlox defines two standardized interfaces
Your advantages using an omlox compatible solution
Following a mix & match strategy, ýou can set-up an RTLS as you like it. Hardware, software and application can be combined with providers from the omlox community.
The omlox hub enables interoperability and flexibility across different locating zones. Various locating technologies (ex. UWB, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5G, RFID, and BLE) can be easily connected, all for the first tim creating a holistic map of the whole smart factory.
Working with standardized interfaces, creating a locating solution that just fits you right are reduced to a minimum. As all suppliers within the omlox community work together, each of them focus on their core competencies that can all be combined. omlox creates an open ecosystem, fostering innovation and reducing costs.
