The reelyActive technology platform allows computers to understand and measure the real world the same way they understand and measure the web. The low-power wireless devices people and products already carry (BYOD) are identified and located by infrastructure already deployed in physical spaces (BYOI). Our software translates this data stream into the language of the web so that existing web platforms may be extended to real world applications, in real-time.
While there are tens of billions of connected devices, there are orders of magnitude more identifiable devices. Our platform supports BYOD (bring-your-own-device) for both, identifying and locating such devices in the real-world in real-time.
Towards collective hyperlocal contextual awareness
among heterogeneous RFID systems
Combining the strengths BLE and UHF passive RFID.
Billions of Bluetooth devices are shipping annually and these include smartphones which can make people anonymously or uniquely identifiable, wearables, and beacons which may be affixed to objects or to physical places.

Sub-GHz Active RFID is similar to BLE but operates at a lower radio frequency with better propagation characteristics and offers the benefit of security by obscurity. BLE being far more cost-effective, proprietary active RFID is typically employed only where these factors are critical.

RAIN RFID devices are shipping on at least an order of magnitude more than BLE, and are typically used for item-level tracking. We have demonstrated the compatibility of UHF passive RFID with our technology platform and are currently integrating the protocol into our software and libraries.
At reelyActive, we developed the reel architecture to reliably and cost-effectively extend infrastructure coverage over wide areas. This plug-and-play daisy-chain configuration is as simple as it is versatile.
