London hospital uses Wi-Fi tracking system

An independent hospital of London, UK has deployed an asset-tracking system, which will allow its staff to quickly locate valuable equipment. The system uses existing Wi-Fi network in conjunction with wireless chip technology from Finnish company Ekahau. The system uses the triangulation between the wireless chips and Wi-Fi access points; the system can locate items with an accuracy of about 10 feet. Staff members would be able to view plans of the hospital on computer screens throughout the facility, which shows the location of items equipped with the chips, from syringe pumps to blood gas monitors.
