Real-time locating systems (RTLS) are used to automatically identify and track the location of objects in real time, usually within a building or other contained area. The wireless RTLS tags are attached to objects or worn by people and the fixed reference points receive wireless signals from tags to determine their location.

Zebra’s version is branded as WhereNet provides a world-class platform providing accurate real-time long-range visibility of assets and personnel, thus providing better data for optimal operational management. There are 5 categories – WhereTag, WhereLAN, WhereCall, WhereWand, and WherePort.
