omlox is an open and interoperable standard for real-time locating in industry. The focus of omlox is to define open interfaces for an interoperable localization system. omlox enables interoperability and flexibility amongst different trackable providers within single or multiple tracking zones.
omlox consists of two parts...
... and defines their interfaces.
omlox Core Zone
The omlox core zone works in conjunction with open interfaces and ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. The UWB radio standard is often used for indoor locating tasks in factories, such as navigating autonomous guided vehicles (AGV) or drones, and locating materials or orders. On the one side, the omlox air-interface connects products (e.g. AGVs, drones) and infrastructure (e.g. satellites). On the other side, the omlox hub API connects the core zone with the hub. Interoperability allows companies to easily network all omlox-enabled UWB products, regardless of the manufacturer.
Why use UWB?
Different devices from different suppliers
In addition to UWB, other locating technologies such as RFID, 5G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS are often used in production, delivery, and storage. The omlox hub enables interoperability and flexibility across these different complementary zones. Applications such as production control systems, goods tracking, and navigation can therefore be networked across zones.
What are the benefits?
omlox facilitates the transitions across, and unifies outdoor locating technologies and indoor locating technologies
