An entirely new micro-location technology built to optimize labor productivity and worker safety
VPS IN ACTION
HOW IT WORKS
GEOFENCE THE SPACES
The 100% wireless BLE mesh network creates geofences in spaces of any size, indoors or out. We use our software and sensors to create a virtual map and then track all activity inside each geofence.
GENERATE MICRO-LOCATION DATA
Every few seconds, wearable sensors produce packets of data that include the precise three-dimensional location of each sensor.
GET ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS
Sensors publish the data packets to the mesh network through relay sensors that deliver them instantly to our analytics engine. Micro-location data is processed and secured in an encrypted analytics database.
WHY VOLAN POSITIONING SYSTEM (VPS)?
VPS is a private and independent BLE 5 mesh network providing the flexibility to implement in any space, indoors or outside.
Patented technology automatically forms and reforms its own dynamic wireless mesh network.
Self-healing network – if one network sensor fails, another sensor mends the connection, and data is never lost.
Automated digital geofencing allows for easy installation and integration.
Micro-movement trend analysis to understand movement patterns
Zone-level positioning insights for occupancy rostering and digital barrier zones
Live floor plan visualization with heat map views
Private By Design
Volan wearable sensors do not record, transmit or store any personally identifiable information – ever.
AES-256 data encryption is the highest possible level of encryption.
No dependency on WiFi, GPS, or smartphones.
A Fortune 500 manufacturer used Volan to uncover a 54% average difference between estimated vs. actual cost of labor by SKU. This insight enabled the company to reprice product lines and greatly improve margin by SKU.
WHY BLUETOOTH LOW ENERGY?
Bluetooth Low Energy avoids interference from other wireless devices.
Bluetooth Low Energy has lower power consumption than regular Bluetooth.
No line of sight means it can connect through any obstacles.
Bluetooth devices are far more cost-effective.
Bluetooth has a better range than infrared communication.
Bluetooth Low Energy differs from its parent technology because it remains dormant until a connection is initiated. Where Bluetooth is best suited for a constant exchange of larger amounts of data, Bluetooth Low Energy excels at exchanging smaller amounts of data over a much longer period of time. Bluetooth Low Energy uses a reduced amount of power through faster connection times than traditional Bluetooth devices, reducing connections from 100mS to 6mS.

Geofencing is a system of virtual boundaries. Using GPS, radio frequency identification, Wi-Fi, and other data mechanisms, a geographical location carries a “geofence” that shows the specific location, and mobility patterns of people and their devices. Geofencing software provides real-time coordinates within the virtual fence perimeter. If the device goes beyond that perimeter, alerts—through a push notification or text message—will be sent to the user.
