OVERVIEW


BlueUp offers devices and solutions for RTLS (Real-Time Locating Systems). BlueUp is specialized in technological solutions for localization in a limited area (LAPS, Local Area Positioning System). The acronym LAPS generalizes the concept of Indoor Positioning System (IPS) and refers to systems capable of locating and tracking people and/or objects in a spatially limited context, which can be indoor (e.g. office buildings, hospital, warehouse ), outdoor (e.g. vehicle parking) or indoor/outdoor hybrid (e.g. a production plant with an external storage area). LAPS systems allow not only to acquire position information, but also data relating to the state (movement, impact or fall event) or physical or environmental parameters, through appropriate integrated sensors.
The wireless technology that enables the solutions proposed by BlueUp is Bluetooth Low Energy which, compared to other technologies on the market, emerges for a series of prerogatives: flexibility, scalability, low cost, reduced consumption, market penetration, integrability with IoT systems. The technological offer of BlueUp includes three different solutions (which can also be integrated with each other to create hybrid infrastructures) which differ in localization algorithms, system architecture, performance, price, in order to respond to the different market needs.

Contact Tracing

Thanks to the wearable device SafeX Tracer it is possible to monitor the distance between operators in the workplace (social distancing) and contact tracing.
The SafeX Tracer device, when worn by an operator, is capable of detecting other devices in the vicinity. When two or more operators approach each other, the device emits alarm signals (via LED, sound, vibration) that increase as the distance decreases.

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BlueUp devices use iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications.

Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines Bluetooth LE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used individually or in combinations to create beacons that can be used for a variety of applications. BlueUp devices are certified from Google.

Quuppa provides accurate real-time positioning data using Bluetooth LE technology, unique Direction Finding signal processing methods and advanced proprietary algorithms. The Quuppa Approved marking is granted to tags after they have passed Quuppa testing program to ensure they meet the high-quality standards for software, hardware, and mechanics. Quuppa Approved tags have native support for all Quuppa SW features.

Wirepas Massive protocol, previously known as Wirepass Mesh, is a wireless network protocol that uses a multi-hop, self-organizing, and decentralized design. Decentralized network topology enables extremely dense network deployment.
