Radianse puts GPS Precision in Biomeds Hands
An indoor positioning solution (IPS) from Radianse Inc (Lawrence, Mass) combines active-RFID with patent-pending location technology to quickly identify assets, where they are located, and how they are being utilized. This information, available via a Web browser, reduces asset shrinkage, speeds preventive maintenance and improves utilization. With receivers that directly connect to an existing Ethernet network and low-cost active-RFID tags, Radianse has reduced the cost and complexity of real-time location to make it practical for health care just as low-priced commercial receivers have extended the use of GPS. Using SMS (short message service), a Radianse IPS can send instant messages to pagers or cell phones when equipment moves beyond preset boundaries.
For more information about Radianse and active-RFID with location information, call Radianse at (978) 974-9300 or e-mail the company at [email protected].
