A system is provided for wirelessly locating objects. The system has a transceiver unit with an antenna array of two partially overlapping coils, which is used in combination with a passive electromagnetic reflector to track or locate the objects. The system is tuned to reflect and receive higher order harmonics of a transmitted signal frequency. The system is reliable in a highly reflective environment with no placement error detection due to reflections. A relatively large distance can be bridged with a minimum power and a small sensitive area to detect the coils, which increase the accuracy to determine the location of the electromagnetic reflector.
