Nanotron Technologies designed a swarm bee location awareness technology. Its swarm product family neatly combines accurate UWB and long-range Chirp radio technologies in a single application. Swarm bee modules offer tag-readiness, one common API and one common pin-out to cut time-to-market for location-aware products by 12 months compared to common in-house RF design.
Nanotron’s CEO, Dr. Jens Albers, said, "UWB and Chirp work together seamlessly in swarm bee systems, providing the best of both worlds: UWB’s short-range accuracy for Exclusion Zone warning and Chirp’s longer range for vehicle-to-people Collision Avoidance Solutions."
For Collision Avoidance (CAS) and Exclusion Zone applications, swarm bee reacts lightning-fast to any approaching vehicle or item that comes within a pre-set distance meaning it can safely be used in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-people situations. Existing products do not combine both use cases into one solution. Sophisticated power management tailored for mobile tags provides solid support for autonomous operation.
Tag-ready swarm bee modules only need an antenna, a battery and housing, thus enabling developers to focus on adding value through application design. This fact makes it simple to mix and match UWB and/or Chirp with proximity and/or real-time tracking in a single application.
Nanotron Technologies will showcase its swarm bee location awareness technology at Geo IoT World, taking place in Brussels, Belgium, June 11-13, 2018. Geo IoT World 2018 will explore location-aware IoT opportunities, with a conference featuring more than 50 speakers, and a highly focused exhibition. More than 250 attendees are expected.
