Location Engine

Software module
An API that empowers you to build BLE-based asset tracking solutions cheaper and faster. Get started

Low Cost

Build a Real-Time Location System at 1/5th the cost of competing positioning technologies such as active RFID or WiFi.

Easy Integration

Launch faster by building your asset positioning solution upon Kontakt.io’s scalable REST API.

No Hassle

Reliable and seamless hardware, so you don’t have to worry about maintenance or extra costs and can focus on developing your solution.
Location Engine architecture overview

1. Hardware transmitters

BLE beacons attached to moving assets continuously broadcast signals to signal receivers.

2. Hardware receivers

Gateways placed around a venue collect the BLE beacon data and relay that information to the API over WiFi.

3. Cloud access

Kontakt.io REST API delivers all collected beacon information to Location Engine.

4. Data computation

Location Engine registers and computes incoming information to generate location data.

5. Location Data

Location Engine delivers live beacon presence information with timestamps and dwell time.
