A real-time location system that is simply plug-and-play.

Tails Indoor Positioning System Mobile Node

Smart X Lab wireless emergency panic button, also used as a tracking device or mobile node in our Tails™ real time location system.

Tails™ - Real Time Location System

Now you can easily deploy a cloud-based indoor positioning system by using Tails™. Based on Smart X Lab's massive mesh network X-Mesh™, you can easily locate or track personnel and property with our end-to-end solution.

No need for a smart phone

Tails™ uses stationary network anchor nodes to identify the location of mobile nodes. It does not require the use of a smart phone, and each tracker operates on a battery for a long time. It is perfect for tracking personnel and property.

Easy to deploy

Tails™ uses Smart X Lab's zero-configuration mesh network technology. You just need to plug-in stationary anchor nodes, turn them on, and they will form a network, communicate via a gateway to our cloud. Instantly you can use our system to track a mobile node. It works over existing sensor network too.

Flexible high resolution

Tails™ can precisely triangulate a position with a resolution up to centimeters. However, most applications do not require this level of accuracy, and could benefit from our scalable architecture. For example, if you just want to check if a person is in a room, we can do that too at a considerable saving to you.
