Abstract

See full text

In one implementation, a method of tracking assets includes obtaining a first image in a first optical domain, where the first optical domain is characterized by a first frequency range. The method also includes detecting a tracking apparatus (e.g., a tag) within the first image in the first optical domain, where a first feature of the tracking apparatus serves as a beacon enabling optical discrimination of the tracking apparatus in the first frequency range. The method further includes determining information associated with the tracking apparatus based on the arrangement of a second feature of the tracking apparatus provided to convey a data set associated with the tracking apparatus.
