Low-power Wi-Fi chipset enables location tracking to 10 cm
Collaborative effort results in technology that is ubiquitous and can track things with the utmost precision indoors, outdoors and in bad weather.

Infineon Technologies AG and Deeyook, a location-as-a-service (LaaS) company, are collaborating on location technology. Deeyook has invented and patented an award-winning tracking solution to determine indoor and outdoor locations of items, assets, and employees. Both companies fuse Deeyook’s ultra-precise, innovative algorithms into Infineon’s best-in-class, low power AIROC™ Wi-Fi® portfolio to enable an accurate, passive, ubiquitous, and efficient location solution.

Deeyook redefines indoor/outdoor location technology through innovation in wireless signal processing, applicable to incumbent Wi-Fi/4G/5G MODEM firmware versions. The firmware extracts angles of wireless transmissions (“Direction Finding, DF”), a first of its kind in the world of commercial wireless tracking. Deeyook’s tracking capabilities are ultra-precise, providing location information within 10 cm or 4 inches, passively exploiting the install base of 1.7 billion wireless access points worldwide.

“There are many challenges when companies implement real-time location systems, primarily because tracking solutions, such as RFID, are not really ubiquitous. This is particularly acute with GPS, which has many shortcomings,” said Gideon Rottem, CEO and Co-Founder of Deeyook. “We created Deeyook to address these challenges – technology that is ubiquitous and can track things with the utmost precision indoors, outdoors and in bad weather. We work with Infineon because its AIROC Wi-Fi portfolio is reliable, power efficient, and they are the IoT market leader.”
