An award-winning Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) 



Polaris is an innovative Real-Time Locating System that features an outstanding precision, flexibility and automation integration.

Polaris has been designed to be a worldwide reference for indoor real-time locating systems. It makes use of state-of-the-art wireless technology based on the IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee™ standard and an innovative set of locating algorithms that notably improve the performance and precision in comparison with other systems.

Polaris exploits the unlimited potential of the n-Core platform which is aimed at the development of applications based on wireless sensor networks in a fast and easy way.

Therefore, Polaris takes advantage of the superior set of features of the n-Core Sirius devices.

Polaris is an alternative to global positioning systems, such as GPS, where those systems cannot work properly, for example tunnels or buildings.


Main Features

  • High scalability, thanks to the implementation of the IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee™ international standard.
  • Fast and simple deployment over the n-Core platform.
  • Robust infrastructure that includes encryption and self-healing mechanisms against possible failures.
  • Low implementation and maintenance costs.
  • Higher accuracy and lower power consumption compared with other systems.
  • Integration with sensors and actuators in the same infrastructure, which makes it a much more versatile alternative than other similar systems.
  • Intuitive user interfaces that allow viewing the position of mobile elements in real-time, detecting accesses to restricted areas and managing alerts. 
  • Responsive interface specially designed for being displayed on smartphones, tablets, computers, etc.
  • Sliding and concealable menus that allow optimizing the visualization of the information on the screen.
  • Historical data: Location and sensor data can be stored at the data base of Polaris for its later visualization. Users can view historical locations as video or heat maps, as well as sensor data as dynamic graphs in real time or static graphs with historical records.


Benefits & Applications

Polaris provides an important competitive advantage to applications where it is necessary to know the location of people, animals or objects. Among its multiple application areas are the healthcare, the industrial or the agricultural sectors, as well as those related to security and ambient assisted living. Its optimal indoor and outdoor functioning makes n-Core Polaris a flexible, powerful and versatile solution.
