Marvelmind Headlight is special version of mobile beacon for helmet, when Marvelmind Helmet can’t be used for some reason, but 3rd party helmet must be tracked. The Headlight is installed on top of virtually any helmet with special clips.
Marvelmind Headlight works in the Inverse Architecture (IA) only and is designed for tracking people in warehouses, assembly plants, construction sites and similar environment – similar to Marvelmind Helmet. But Headlight has additional external battery pack that provides up to 8 time longer working time than that in Marvelmind Helmet (the batteries are standard 18650 size are not included).
The recommended configurations for Headlight is IA in 915/868MHz band with 4-8Hz update rate and Real-Time Player enable and TDMA submaps turned on. The resulting latency is 1-2 seconds – for the best tracking quality. Non-TDMA works well as well, because Headlight may have lower probability for obstruction than Marvelmind Jacket or Marvelmind Badge.
Marvelmind Headlight includes Mini-RX and 2 additional external microphone for more robust and reliable tracking in complex environment. There is also an additional power pack for external 18650 batteries.
