Real-time Location

With ClearBlade’s RTLS, highly accurate positions can be visualized and analyzed to optimize your operations.

Ingest any data from any location device or sensor, and analyze and operate on the data anywhere.

Real-time Location Hits
The Sweet Spot

ClearBlade RTLS adds location data ingestion, normalization, storage, and visualization tasks to our leading full-stack edge computing platform. Pre-defined data interfaces and pre-configured ingestion save you the complex and time-consuming task of developing these solutions from scratch. Here’s how ClearBlade RTLS works:

Take Action

If you have the devices and ClearBlade, the hard work has already been done for you. Select from an array of pre-built ingestion adapters, assign them to your devices, and the ClearBlade RTLS will take care of the rest. You can now communicate with any location device: GPS-enabled, indoor tracking hardware, and self-locating devices. Just add the desired adapter and set the device's rules.


Put incoming data into context to gain insights. Define your data structure and tag it for capture. ClearBlade provides a complete set of flexible data structures with the option to extend them for additional needs. The ClearBlade RTLS gives you a full data structure stack to leverage to get your solution up and running quickly.


Define retention schedules around your requirements and needs. ClearBlade RTLS can store historical trends and current/last states with a rich management interface that allows for summation, aggregation, rollup of data sets, and replay of history over time.


Quickly inspect data, track trends, and perform anomaly analysis on data points. Compare datasets over time across similar behaviors. Define groups and compare performance across different tiers. Replay positional attributes over time and plot heat maps to identify where resources are spending the majority of time.

Take Action

With a greater understanding of your data, you can more effectively take action to reach desired outcomes. Define command/control logic based on rulesets. ClearBlade was designed to be extended into your existing systems, workflows, and processes. Leverage integrations to expand and support your objectives and integrate directly with your back office systems. Built-in geofencing allows for resource safety and notifications, warnings, and advanced rules for ensuring real-time safety communications.

Real-time Location Uses

Multi-Modal Location Tracking

Connected tracking devices feed into transportation management and supply chain platforms to provide critical information at the pallet and package level. These last-mile data systems give shippers a competitive edge when connected with ocean, air, and rail shipment tracking. To alleviate the pressure on your supply chain, the most essential component is a technology platform with one big, overhead view of everything across your multimodal transportation ecosystem.

Real-time Logistics

For transportation and logistics enterprises, this means end-to-end visibility and traceability of all containers, pallets, and packages. For manufacturers, it enables intelligent management and flow of all critical assets, whether in a facility or a sprawling storage yard. Security and safety operations involve controlling employee access and ensuring they do not linger in hazardous areas beyond safety requirements.


Track and trace for industrial tools refers to systems capable of recognizing and reporting the location and status of tools in a facility. Today's production of industrial and consumer goods requires exacting work. Precise application of pressure or torque is required in many industries, and operator errors can cause costly defects. Track and trace technology can improve production safety, quality, and productivity.
