Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Enables Smart Factory of the Future

Micro-location is essential to digitalizing industrial operations through Industry 4.0, smart factory and LEAN initiatives.Process optimization and safety, the two prime considerations to most industries become more informed through tying who, what, when and where to people, tools, supplies, goods, machinery and events in real-time. Current location-based technologies GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth® Low Energy cannot achieve micro-location at the precision industry requires. GPSs under ten-meter precision enabled an explosion of retail e-commerce and allowed us to dump those big map books; Wi-Fi helped nail down even finer location precision; and Bluetooth Low Energy locates within a few feet in ideal conditions. But industrial and business applications need finer precision and much higher reliability.
