About RTLS

RTLS is the technology used to find, track, manage, and identify the geographical position of a target on real-time basis. It can track the location of objects in real time with the help of nodes or tags and readers. Nodes or tags are embedded in smartphones or navigational devices by which a user can easily track an object. A reader is used to receive wireless signals from the tags by which an object can be located. RTLS works in technologies such as GPS, UWB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and RFID to track the location of objects. RTLS has found application in many sectors such as Healthcare, Military, Supply Chain Management, Retail, Government, Recreation Organizations, and Postal and Courier Services. RTLS provides numerous applications such as fleet tracking, personal tracking, network security, navigation, inventory, and asset tracking.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “One key trend emerging in the market is the increased use of analytics in the healthcare domain. Most hospitals are incorporating data analytics software to track par levels of infusion pumps, perform real-time tracking of temperature levels of refrigerators used in medical facilities, and monitor patients. This helps hospital staff to extract large datasets and obtain real-time information to gain better insights, aiding them in making better decisions on how to maintain medical equipment.”

According to the report, one of the main drivers of this market is the increased use of RTLS in the healthcare domain. Hospitals use RTLS solutions for asset management to locate equipment such as hospital beds, infusion pumps, oxygen cylinders, ventilators, and wheelchairs. Hospitals also use RTLS solutions for employee monitoring and hospital management.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is low standards of RTLS. Technology standards for RTLS are not clear, which leads vendors to use different standards. This factor creates incompatibility among different applications that could result in high implementation costs for companies.
