GPS-Denied Proximity Detection System

Our engineering team at SAPHI developed a GPS-denied proximity detection system used to avoid collisions between assets. The asset tracking system using IoT leverages the latest in location detection technology that is 20x more precise than traditional GPS. Read on to find out more.

What Was The Problem?

Our client required a precise proximity detection system for deployment in remote locations with no GPS access. 

What Was The Solution?

Our experienced engineers developed an advanced asset tracking system using IoT that leverages the latest in GPS-denied location tracking technology that is 20x more precise than traditional GPS. Along with asset tracking functionality, we programmed the end product to perform as a proximity detection system to prevent collisions between assets.

What Were The Outcomes?

The custom proximity detection system delivers an array of benefits and advantages over traditional proximity detection systems, including:

  • 20x more precise than GPS 
  • Improved performance reliability
  • Ability to function in GPS denied locations (inside, underground, remote locations etc.)

What Skills Did SAPHI Use To Implement The Solution?

SAPHI leveraged its broad expertise across both hardware and software to develop the bespoke solution including:

    • JavaScript – to program the logic that determines the positions of various assets in space
    • Ultra-wideband – for GPS denied location tracking
    • Real-time operating systems 
    • Angular – used to develop the web app for configuring settings

What Support Did SAPHI Offer After Completion?

SAPHI provides customised packages to support the full system development life cycle and implementation of upgrades to support the evolving needs of our clients and their customers.
