Indoor Positioning System

Indoor Positioning System

We’ve developed a swarm UltraWideBand indoor localization solution, with 8 or more static beacons.

These are needed to fulfill our precision and scalability requirements to be able to fly a swarm of drones. 

  • DWM3000-based module
  • Precision, starting from a 10cm error that can be tuned down to 3-5cm
  • Scalability: has no bottleneck on number of trackable objects
  • Lightweight: the payload is less than 8 grams
  • Flexibility: it can be set up to track in non-square rooms or around obstacles
  • and last but not least, it is far less expensive than a mocap system!

It is composed by to parts: Beacons and Tags.

Positioning error < 10cm

Software tool for the initial setup to a beacon holder design.

Software Tools:

We are developing various software that can help the end user make the best use of our indoor technology .
Currently these software are Windows Only , but we will try to bring them to the remaining OSs as well .

This is the first software that can currently be used to allow one to know which anchors ( which are the hardware elements described earlier on this page ) are on and with what power .
