PoLTE, providers of advanced location solutions for a hyper-connected world, has announced its Lite-Touch Architecture to calculate positions in the cloud, not on the device, the company said.
This patented approach is designed to enable location services for the next generation of billions of small, inexpensive and power-constrained mobile devices as they seamlessly move indoors and outdoors.
By offloading computation-heavy location calculations from the device to the cloud, the PoLTE positioning solution makes location positioning available to a wider variety of devices, including those that are constrained by battery life, memory, processing power, size and cost. This includes IoT-based applications that historically relied on GPS, with its high rate of power consumption, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with their added size, cost and network complexity.
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, PoLTE is a software company offering a virtual location platform and a robust portfolio of patented location technologies for today´s hyper-connected world. Leveraging LTE, the most globally ubiquitous signal available, PoLTE´s cloud-based platform is capable of persistently and ubiquitously tracking the position of mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices (including those constrained by size, cost and power consumption) in real-time as they move seamlessly between outdoor and indoor environments. This method improves accuracy upwards of 10X over other methods and eliminates the need for multiple physical radios and chipsets (GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth). To learn more, visit www.PoLTE.com.
