Actility’s subsidiary Abeeway, market leader in low-power indoor & outdoor fused geolocation, has launched the Abeeway Smart Badge, a portable multi-mode tracker in ID card format with embedded sensors combining GPS, Low-power GPS, Wi-Fi Sniffer, BLE and LoRaWAN TDoA geolocation technologies, supporting accurate and continuous outdoor and indoor geolocation, making it ideal for tracking, zone notification and monitoring of workforce safety and security.

Abeeway’s Smart Badge precise tracking abilities locate workers and employees no matter where they are, as it works indoors and outdoors. The intelligent tracker adapts to the environment by choosing the best location technology to run on in its present situation, thereby optimizing battery life and, unlike other trackers that work on power-hungry cellular networks, benefits from the power efficient LoRaWAN® connectivity, a communication technology that paves the way for enormous amounts of IoT data with the low power consumption required by IoT applications, The device includes a 1.3Ah rechargeable battery. This high battery longevity allows it to function for more than a year on a single charge, and 90 days with 60 outdoor/indoor positions per day without needing a SIM card to work, saving budget from costly subscriptions.
