How does it work?

Small sensors are attached to walls and items. They can talk to each other as well as speak with servers in the cloud. A digital copy of your physical business is recreated in a secure cloud environment.

Movement or interaction in your space triggers pre-programmed actions. You can literally build and run apps for the physical world around you.

How does this tech work?

There are a variety of modern wireless technologies used to automate everything quickly and accurately. Tags are typically low-power transmitters using Bluetooth or Ultra Wideband. They are long lasting despite having small batteries. It’s the same technology Apple uses for their AirTags.

UWB Anchors with auto-mapping

Sensors attached to walls and powered by wires are called anchors. They use Ultra Wideband (UWB) time-of-flight technology to compute their relative position to each other and map the room automatically. These sensors also constantly communicate with the cloud over cellular networks, where inch-precise position of all the things using UWB tags is stored.

The living digital twin of your business

A digital copy of the entire building with the real-time position of all the assets, people, and vehicles is stored in the cloud. Precise coordinates as well as sensor data such as temperature, pressure, motion can be accessed programmatically using our APIs.

Program your world in JavaScript

Developers can create new generation apps using JavaScript to define actions when different objects move or interact with each other. Code is compiled and distributed remotely to all the sensors. Apps designed for one location can be easily installed and run on other spaces providing the same, consistent expiernce.

What are the applications?

With SpaceTimeOS, possibilities are endless. Some people build smart workplace applications reinventing offices, labs and factories. Some create the exact digital twins of their entire businesses and supply chains. Others combine physical world data and blend them with digital metaverses.

Kind of like a computer game, but real

The best analogy would be to imagine a computer game. The tiny units you see moving on the screen are, in fact, your co-workers. They collaborate, move assets, drive vehicles and virtually depict your business live and working.

Manual or automated assistance

You can help them by identifying bottlenecks, guiding their tasks or warning them about danger. You can do it manually or fully automate it with software apps.

Marketplace of apps and widgets

Applications can be installed on different spaces as little widgets containing important metrics or visuals. Below are just example use-cases for different industries:

Asset tracking

See inch-precise position of your key assets real-time. Program in JavaScript notifications or automations crafted for your business.

How are these apps created?

They are made by developers using SpaceTimeOS API. A lot of these apps are available in our Marketplace.  You can instantly download and run them on your spaces. Many of these apps are open-sourced, so you can learn how they work and modify to your need.

You can also create your own apps from scratch using our JavaScript API. Simply select a floor, draw a zone and code in JS what you'd like to happen when things move or interact there. You can even drag and drop charts or create little widgets to visualize key metrics. There are even Machine Learning apps that will learn about your business and recommend improvements.

This is so awesome! How can I get started?

Start by installing SpaceTimeOS in your very own room. Buy evaluation access to SpaceTimeOS for 90 days and we will send you tutorials and set of sensors to create a digital twin of your location. You will be able to test the accuracy, responsiveness and all our APIs. You will also become the inventor of many real-world apps.

Ordering and shipping

Beacons and tags

What is the positioning precision?

For UWB tags which are in motion, the accuracy will be approx. 10cm (4 inches). For BLE tags, it can be 1 to 3 meters positioning precision depending on the room size.

When I will be charged for the order?

We will charge your credit card only after the devices are shipped. Before and after shipping we will send an email notification.

Are UWB anchors powered by wire?

They do have an internal battery and when you are demoing they can last a full day before you have to re-charge with USB-C. For permanent installation, you should plug them to a power source since they continuously scan for tags and communicate with the cloud.

What is the coverage area of 4 anchors?

The line-of-sight range of UWB Anchors is approx. 20m, so the maximum coverage area 4 anchors can map is approx. 400m2. For larger spaces, another set of anchors should be installed.

Do you ship internationally?

We ship worldwide from Europe, where our devices are also manufactured. Please note import fees and delays might apply in some regions.

How long does a UWB tag battery last?

It depends how you program it. A passive UWB tag that only advertises its presence can last on a single charge for a year. If you use modem for cloud communication e.g. streaming sensor data or as panic button it will last several months.
