# Proximity mesh setup
Follow this guide if you want to create a smart mesh between tags, and do not need exact XYZ positions. In this mesh of tags you can track the proximity or distances between tags, exchange messages (e.g. about distance breach events) and collect sensor data.
If instead you also need to know the position of your objects, you'll need a Positioning system. This will always involve anchors that are hung around the field of interest. The precise positions of these anchors are fixed and need to be known.
