B-UWB-MEK1

Ultra-wideband Module Evaluation Kit
Prototype system for accurate real-time indoor location

The B-UWB-MEK1 is packaged in box of 2 boards used either as fixed or as mobile devices. The exact number of boards needed is defined according to the use case. It may be used as an extension for 1D measurement as well as for 3D positioning.

The Module Evaluation Kit B-UWB-MEK1 is equipped with the UWB module B-UWB-MOD1. It has been designed to test advanced positioning and tracking technology in real conditions, or to be directly embedded into a ready-to-use indoor location system such as setups compatible with the omlox standard, which ensures interoperability among Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS) in industrial contexts.

It represents an affordable and user-friendly solution for 1D measurement as well as for 2D/3D positioning. Experimenting with B-UWB-MEK1 may also be the first step into further indoor location systems for large amounts.
