Introduction to UWB Network Topologies and Applications Vortragssprache Englisch

Providing precise location could be considered a form of intelligence. Accurately providing the 'Where' information of an object to a system or to the cloud is information that can be acted upon in a smart fashion, real time. Of course, precision location data has already been possible for some time with GPS for example - but it does not solve the location indoors challenge. That is where Ultra-Wideband comes to the fore. Already standardized under the IEEE standard, 802.11.4a, UWB is now gaining even more momentum, with UWB systems deployed worldwide in industrial safety, manufacturing, agriculture, hospitals, consumer and automotive products. This presentation will introduce UWB, compare various topologies for UWB location systems illustrating where and when they are suitable and discuss the trade-offs of each type in the real world. Some examples are: TWR: This is in some ways the most basic system yet still powerful providing geo-fencing capabilities for keyless entry systems, safety and security applications. TDoA: A more sophisticated system requiring more infrastructure deployment with the capability to track 1000’s of assets or objects. PDoA: Here the distance between objects and the x,y in space can be precisely determined enabling novel applications such as 'follow me' robotics. We will show this working in practice with a live demos and use cases describing utilization of complementary technologies like BLE and sensor fusion.
