Location systems allow the identification of the location of an object or person based on the ownership of the identification element. Tracing systems allow you to identify and plot the route needed to move from one location to another. Such systems appear to a large extent outdoors, as they communicate using satellites. The impact of the pandemic situation has pointed to the need for monitoring and tracing of people, usually even in enclosed interior spaces, where the satellite signal has no coverage and conventional tracing systems are therefore unusable. The current market offers several options for tracing systems, but they are still mostly in development.

The aim of the article is to present the results of the analysis of tracing systems in the form of a training course. The training course consists of two options, one is content for students in the course called Alarm Transmission Systems and the other is content for the public, or for other users of route systems. In the first case, it is information implemented in lectures and exercises, while the course presents four different tracing systems. One lecture is devoted to each of them to deepen theoretical knowledge in terms of installation and use of the system. Subsequently, during the exercises, students work with these systems, i.e. they install them and then determine their impact, efficiency and the like. The big advantage is that all installations are carried out under the same conditions and therefore at the end of the course, on Friday of the week, students can evaluate the advantages and possible disadvantages of the systems. The second variant is focused only on theoretical knowledge. It is a comprehensive teaching text supplemented by the possibility of installing components and measured values from practical tests. The advantage is that the second variant can be regularly updated and supplemented with the latest results of experimental measurements. This form of teaching and long-term work of students in research is very important and very popular among students.
