Using Ultra Wideband (UWB) pulsed signaling optimized for two-way time-of-flight (TW-TOF) ranging and communications, the Scholar development module provides wireless distance measurements with 2 CM precision.
The modules excel even in the most challenging environments (indoors, in tunnels, in very cluttered environments, in low visibility or harsh weather), where traditional location-based technologies like GPS or LiDAR struggle or sometimes, don’t work at all.
Measuring ranges with 2 CM precision allows you to create very precise tracking and navigation networks. RangeNet, Scholar’s localization software suite for research and education, builds upon TW-TOF ranging with a complete ranging network and a localization layer to support navigation and tracking applications. Network coordination happens automatically on the Scholar development module 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.
