Arduino hardware platform for indoor localisation based on ultra-wideband technology and inertial sensors

Speaker: Samuel Van de Velde

Company/ Institute: Pozyx

Event: 20th work meeting

At Pozyx Labs, we do not believe that there exists a single technology for accurate indoor localization. Instead, the solution will come from an intelligent combination of many different technologies. We have created a positioning platform that combines ultra-wideband technology with a myriad of inertial sensors. By employing sensor fusion the disadvantages of each sensor separately can be mitigated and accurate indoor positioning becomes possible. The Pozyx system is compatible with the popular Arduino platform and is very easy to use. This allows for anyone, from a researcher, a business, to a creative mind to start with their positioning application in a matter of minutes.
