Litum IoT helps make better use of your forklifts and lifting trucks,
cut down on accidents & wasted man hours.

Purchase or leasing of forklifts, their maintenance, charging and the expense of extra workers to operate them are a big investment to your business.
Forklifts are involved in collisions and accidents due to the risky nature of driving a heavy-duty equipment
while also carrying a bulky load.

Improve forklift efficiency & workplace safety by tracking and monitoring your forklifts
with sub-meter accuracy.


  • Monitor forklift & lifting truck usage, increase utilization
  • Optimize forklift capacity & routes
  • Prevent collisions
  • Record history of forklift operations

How it works

Litum integrates ultra-wideband (UWB) active RFID technology into battery powered active RFID tags installed on all forklifts and lifting equipment. These tags work in conjunction with our RTLS mesh network, installed throughout your facility to create an invisible “indoor GPS system” that monitors every forklift’s location with sub-meter accuracy.

The signals from each tag are converted into location data using various algorithms such as time difference of arrival, time of flight, and trilateration. The location of each vehicle and its operator is then sent on to our RTLS application software that is installed on your servers, where they are interpreted and displayed in an easy to understand manner.

With Litum IoT forklift tracking RTLS system you’ll know where vehicles are at anytime.
Therefore you’ll be able to generate usage and activity reports,
visual spagetthi diagrams, analytics.

For improved safety: Collision Avoidance

RTLS system with collision and proximity alert can provide a constant 360 degree awareness of nearby people.
Our software signals with a visual and an audible alert when the forklift comes close to another forklift or person.
This gives the operator plenty of time to slow or reach a complete stop to avoid collision.



  • We locate assets and personnel with sub-meter accuracy, no matter how big is the area
  • Our tags have embedded motion sensors; you will know if the person is wearing his badge or not.
  • Our tags can be powered up by the battery of the forklifts, eliminating the need of battery replacement and charging.
