3M Teams With Sonitor to Broaden Track and Trace Portfolio

3M, a diversified technology company, and Sonitor Technologies have announced that 3M will bring Sonitor's high-definition ultrasound-based Real Time Location System technology to its track and trace customer base.

Sonitor's Real Time Location System (RTLS) technology, which is being deployed in several hospitals, automatically tracks, with room-level or sub-room level location accuracy, the location of mobile equipment and people in complex indoor environments, such as hospitals.

Terje Aasen, CEO of Sonitor, said: "Sonitor's teaming with 3M's track and trace solutions will allow us to broaden our market penetration by incorporating our high-definition ultrasound indoor positioning system technology into 3M's established solutions for healthcare facilities and other industries worldwide."
