DirAct by reelyActive


The open source embedded software for real-time proximity interaction detection.

Open source embedded software,
DirAct reframes real-time location as
who is interacting with whom/what?

DirAct: answer the question that matters

A real-time location system (RTLS) answers the question "who is where?"

An indoor positioning system (IPS) answers the question "where am I?"

DirAct answers the question "who is interacting with whom or what?"

Location made meaningful

Whereas a RTLS or IPS typically represents location as x,y or x,y,z coordinates, DirAct represents location as meaningful interactions between people, products and places:

  • Person A is interacting with Person B
  • Person A is interacting with Cart C
  • Person A is interacting with Door D
