How IoT Can Benefit From Location

Precision Location for IoT provides global positioning services to nearly all types of connected devices. Through flexible integration offerings, our solutions allow organizations to track valuable assets globally from facilities into the field, providing real-time location intelligence, reducing operational costs and improving system efficiencies.  

 

From consumer devices to enterprise applications, we offer both direct and marketplace integration options in a lightweight, power-conscious solutions, making it easier for businesses to track equipment and fleets with IoT-enabled asset tracking.  

Use cases

IoT Asset Tracking/Supply Chain & Logistics

Track assets as they move within a warehouse or supply chain to improve your overall operations. Adding IoT asset tracking helps increase efficiency with cost-lowering real-time location information. We’ll help you track and analyze the location data from your assets and perform location-based market research to help you apply those learnings to your business. 

Industrial IoT

Leverage our industrial IoT solution which uses real-time location intelligence powered by sensors and supply chain analytics to help you make smarter business decisions and better manage industrial inventory. By implementing an industrial IoT tracking system, your business will be able to reduce costs and increase your operational efficiency.

Geospatial Analytics

Get location-based insights about foot traffic patterns and usage density. 

Wearables

Accurately locate and track wearable devices anywhere in the world.

How Skyhook Does It

Skyhook uses a proprietary hybrid location positioning system to provide precise location for IoT devices and digital asset management. This highly specialized service requires the use of algorithms for GPS, Wi-Fi and cellular signals. These algorithms, coupled with global coverage via 4+ billion geolocated Wi-Fi access points, enables Skyhook to provide the most accurate and precise location available.

 

LPWAN compatible

Precision Location for IoT is LPWAN compatible. LoRa native geo-location solution, based on TDOA triangulation, provides a rough estimate of device location that is highly dependent on the number of LoRa gateways, their density and multi-path environment. Skyhook’s solution allows you to locate devices globally with high accuracy even when gateways are sparse, without using GPS and significantly draining battery. Skyhook developed Precision Location for IoT so that it is compatible with LoRaWAN in order to suit devices that need minimum bandwidth and power consumption.
