Using Ultra Wideband (UWB) pulsed signaling optimized for two-way time-of-flight (TW-TOF) ranging and communications, the Humatics KinetIQ 100 development board provides wireless distance measurements with 2 cm precision.
The boards excel even in the most challenging environments (indoors, in tunnels, in very cluttered environments, in low visibility or harsh weather), places where traditional location- based technologies like GPS or LiDAR struggle or sometimes don’t work at all.
Measuring ranges with cm-scale accuracy allows you to create very precise tracking and navigation networks. RangeNet, Humatics’ localization software suite for research and education, builds upon TW-TOF ranging with a complete ranging network and a location engine to support navigation and tracking applications. Network coordination happens automatically on the KinetIQ 100 development board without the need for a connected host.
The software logs waveform scan data, provides bias adjustment and includes a patented range quality metric informing the user of blocked or compromised measurements. A feature-rich API with sample C and MATLAB code allows users to build their own custom interfaces.
