About the company:

At RTLOC we've developed our own solution for high-performance tracking of objects or people. We use ultra-wideband (UWB) as a wireless technology, an upcoming (see also the recent adoption by Apple) technology which lends itself very well to position estimation.

There is a bunch of data (position information, sensor data, IoT node meta data, ...) from our devices and algorithm. We’re looking to better visualize (graphs, heatmaps, …) this data and output it into nice documents (PDF). Preferable, we would also automate this process. (thus implement it in Javascript / Python / Scala / …)
