WHAT IS SEQUITUR
Sequitur is a Real Time Locating System (RTLS).
It is an ecosystem capable of high localization accuracy thanks to the adoption of the UWB technology.
A set of fixed nodes, called anchors, is positioned in the monitored area. They are the access points of the Sequitur RTLS, and they act as reference to localize mobile nodes, called tags.
Different types of tag and architecture are offered depending on the need to localize and track people, objects, machines or provide real-time navigation.
Sequitur enables localization, tracking and navigation in harsh environments, such as industrial contexts. It works indoor and outdoor, also where GPS is unavailable.

Sequitur at a glance
Easy and fast setup
API & extensive docs
Sequitur ecosystem is composed of anchors, tags and a management software.
Different products are offered depending on the user need.
In particular, a main distinction is related to the architecture, centralized and decentralized.
The decentralized architecture
The decentralized architecture works as a GPS system, where unlimited tags compute simultaneously their positions. This architecture is suitable for navigation and to track machines, robots and drones. Power supply is required at tag side. No external servers are needed. No connection among anchors. Maximum simplicity of deployment.
Position estimation: in tag
Tag form factor: industrial tag for machines, external battery pack or power supply
Tag energy efficiency: typical 1 day (10Ah 5V battery pack)
Tags: Unlimited – Tracked simultaneously at max refresh rate
Refresh Rate: up to 20 Hz for all the tags simultaneously
Network infrastructure (anchors): not needed
Central unit: not needed. Available for centralized tags’ monitoring and management (WiFi)
The centralized architecture
The centralized architecture allows localization of small and battery-powered tags, whose positions are computed by an external Central Unit. Anchors are connected to the network. No master nodes are present for the maximum flexibility and scalability.
Position estimation: in central unit
Tag form factor: small personal tag with embedded battery
Tag energy efficiency: ~ 14.000.000 position updates per battery (weeks/months, scales with refresh rate)
Tags: Unlimited – High tag density, scales with refresh rate
Refresh Rate: up to 20 Hz, scales with number of tags
Network infrastructure (anchors): Ethernet
Central unit: needed for position estimation. Possibility of coexistence of InGPS and InTracking tags
