Wireless locating is a category of technologies to determine the actual location of an entity by means of wireless transmission. The wireless locating concept arises from location awareness, some generalized demand for definitive knowledge about the actual location of objects and persons.

This category includes articles on different types of real-time locating systems (RTLS) and many other locating concepts in the context of ubiquitous computing.

Several groups of approaches are currently manifest in products for local purposes in relative coordinates or in site-wise defined systems of coordinates:

Some systems support regionally limited purposes in absolute coordinates:

Specialised service approaches just offer locating in symbolic coordinates, as e.g. with IP addresses:

The other systems designs apply for global purposes in global coordinates as e.g. WGS84:

Nowadays outdated systems approaches for global locating are:

Compare: Inertial technologies do not use wires nor radio, thus inertial measurement is not a wireless technology, but is mostly used in conjunction with such.
