Interview with Ajay Malik, author of RTLS for Dummies

Mr Beacon has a new interview with Ajay Malik, the author of RTLS for Dummies.

It starts with a discussion that tries to define what’s a Real Time Location System (RTLS) in terms of the technologies that can be used. Ajay explains how he ended up working with RTLS and writing the book.

There’s discussion on business drivers and how RTLS relates to machine to machine (M2M) and IoT. Usecases mentioned include promotional marketing, asset tracking and autonomous navigation. There’s a useful explanation of trilateration, triangulation, angle of arrival, time of arrival and time distance of arrival.

Ajay sees asset tracking as currently the most important application. However, going forward, RTLS will feed more into AI to provide context.
