The Wirepas positioning engine (WPE) is a software component running on cloud infrastructure. Once correctly initiated it takes data from Wirepas Mesh and outputs location as well as area information for devices in the network.
What is the Wirepas Positioning Engine?
The Positioning Engine is a software library that takes input of the predefined anchor coordinates (reference points) and as an output provides asset coordinates (latitude, longitude). The customer can integrate it in their own back-end and run it on their own cloud or private server.
The deliverables will also include a fully functional tag reference firmware that can be further customized by the customer or used directly in production. It is delivered as source code. For a gateway there will be a reference implementation, also delivered as source code.
The package will also include deployment and system performance analysis tool and the following documentation:
