Bluesoft combines RFID and Wi-Fi in AeroScout T2 Tag
Bluesoft is shipping the AeroScout T2 Tag, a new addition to its AeroScout WLAN Location System. The T2 Tag extends the Wi-Fi location capabilities of the original AeroScout Tag to a smaller, more flexible form factor, allowing for easy real-time tracking of people and other critical assets. Bluesoft has successfully implemented the T2 Tag as the centerpiece of a child-tracking solution at Legoland Denmark.

"The fast adoption of both RFID and Wi-Fi technologies has created a surge in demand for location services, and Bluesoft is at the forefront of this opportunity," said Andris Berzins, Bluesoft's VP Marketing & Business Development. "With the T2 Tag, Bluesoft has leveraged these two technologies to provide customers with better functionality than active RFID, while utilizing standard Wi-Fi wireless networking. This allows tracking of nearly any asset, thereby streamlining operations and increasing profits in a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, logistics and healthcare, as well as theme parks."

Park guests now have the opportunity to rent small AeroScout Wi-Fi Tags with a wristband that the children wear inside the park. If they become separated, parents simply send a text message (SMS) from their mobile phone, and receive an automated response telling them the accurate location of their child. The parents can then find their child in the appropriate location according to a map they are provided when renting the tags. Feedback from park visitors has been overwhelmingly positive.

Bluesoft's AeroScout WLAN Location System enables customers to immediately locate both standard Wi-Fi devices and Wi-Fi tags within any WLAN network. The T2 Tag extends this functionality to a multitude of assets by offering a very small form factor (1.5 by 2.5 inches) as well as a variety of functional mounting options such as a wristband attachment, a flat asset mount and a badge clip. The company says the T2 Tag boasts a battery life of up to 3.5 years.
