Common terms

While using the real-time location service, you might encounter the following terms.

  • Venue — The boundaries of a property, such as a campus or location with buildings and outdoor operations.
  • Single Building — A venue has at least one building. A 30-meter boundary is added around each building in the processing phase.
  • Multiple Buildings — Some venues have more than one building. You can set up or publish buildings individually.
  • Immovable asset — An object that is usually static after installation, or won't need to be replaced for a long time. For example, Wi-Fi access points, ultra-wideband (UWB) anchors, and Bluetooth antennas are immovable assets.

    Currently, the real-time location service supports Wi-Fi access points. When uploading floor plans and immovable assets, use Wi-Fi AP-802.11mc as the Asset Type Group Name.

  • Movable asset — A device, typically mobile, used indoors or in an outdoor space. For example, Bluetooth, UWB devices, RFID tags, badges, and other IoT devices are movable assets.
