In present day realities the search for new ways of improving business processes is directly connected with geolocation and positioning technologies. One of such solutions is RFID, a system of radio frequency identification, which allows tracking objects or persons. It is based on using readers and special RFID tags (transponders) that are placed in the form of labels, stickers, markers on tracked objects. From time to time readers send signals and tags using radio frequency emission for sending responses with information for identification.

Although Bluetooth location services have been successful, there is currently a demand for solutions that can provide more high productivity. For example, some real-time location services (RTLS) deployments require centimeter precision. Fortunately, a useful new feature has recently been added to the new Bluetooth standard to meet these requirements.

Many real time location systems (RTLS) require high accuracy of results, up to several centimeters. In such situations AoA based positioning, whose realization is possible thanks to the Bluetooth 5.1 technology, comes for help. The Angle of Arrival method provides for the use of not only the signal strength (RSSI) but also the angle of its arrival, which allows calculating the exact location of the object within the range of 0.1 - 1 m. AoA angle of arrival belongs to triangulation-based methods.
