omlox goes US!
omlox participated at the most important trade show in North America for logistics and material handling with two interesting showcases in April, ProMat.
- The benefits of the omlox standard in the smart manufacturing and logistics environment
- Insights into the indoor real-time locating system (RTLS) with the omlox core zone
The events were a good opportunity to get in touch with interested parties to expand our network in North America.
That’s why we are planning more events for our community, starting with this webinar:
An Introduction to omlox Webinar
You will get in-depth information about the first open locating standard omlox, its use, and benefits for today’s 4.0 landscape by the committee leader and CEO of Heidelberg Mobil, Matthias Jöst, Ph.D., as well as a demo from the omlox testbed and exclusive insights into one of our partner installations.

omlox is an open and interoperable standard that is revolutionizing real-time locating and, therefore, a milestone for companies on the path to Industry 4.0. The focus is to define open interfaces for an interoperable localization system. Until now, real-time locating required proprietary hardware from a single vendor. That single vendor provided the infrastructure to provide location details for whatever was being tracked. Operability between providers was virtually nonexistent. Omlox changes all that: Founded as an ecosystem of providers and solutions, industrial locating is finally widely available. With omlox, products from different manufacturers can be networked together in a core zone using UWB technology; however, various other locating technologies can be easily connected, all for the first time. omlox works with open interfaces to guarantee interoperable use.
