A groundbreaking passive real-time location system developed under Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) The Intelligent Airport (TINA) project with the University of Cambridge will enable retailers, airlines and other businesses to inexpensively and effectively monitor items’ locations in real time. A major objective of the approach was not only to overcome the limited range for reliable detection passive tags so that antennas could be placed with spacings of 20 m (comparable with conventional wifi spacings), but also to provide accurate real-time location. As an output of the project a proof on principle demonstrator was created. The solution, which recently won the Royal Academy of Engineering’s ERA Foundation Entrepreneurship Award, could save airlines millions of pounds. Retail groups have also been engaged in the project – not just for tagging items, but also for the advancement of self-service checkouts.
