Current Trends in UWB Standardization Activities
The last two years have witnessed an increased interest in both chip manufacturing companies and standardization bodies in UWB. UWB’s appealing features, such as flexibility and robustness, as well as its high-precision ranging capability, have polarized attention and made UWB an excellent candidate for applications regarding short-range/high-speed wireless communications and sensor networks requiring accurate localization and tracking. Low bit rate, location-aware applications for connecting simple devices that consume minimal power at short distances are an additional area in which UWB has recently started to play a leading role for future standards.
