With the use of ultra-wideband technology, it is possible to achieve indoor 3D positioning with centimeter accuracy.
Pozyx comes packed with accurate motion sensors such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer and a pressure sensor.
The ultra-wideband technology provides wireless message communication that enables automation and communication for your (Arduino) projects.
Pozyx can function by itself or as an Arduino shield. We provide you with lots of examples and tutorials to make positioning super easy!
Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology is the key to accurate ranging an positioning. However, the UWB-module itself only provides accurate timestamps. We have implemented state-of-the art algorithms to obtain the most accurate range and positioning information.
3D positioning requires at least 4 anchors to be within range (3 for 2D positioning). In general the position of these anchors must be known in advance. Our shield provides the feature to obtain the anchor positions with a single push of a button. No manual measuring required!
With the use of ultra-wideband wireless technology, messages can be transmitted over the air. These messages can be text or user data, but also commands to control remote pozyx modules. We made it possible to remotely turn on LEDs, toggle pins, read out sensor data, and much more.
Pozyx is equipped with an accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. With these sensors it is possible to obtain the orientation of the device. However, separately these sensors all have their flaws. For example, the accelerometer is noisy and the gyroscope is biased. Together these flaws can be mitigated. Pozyx offers 9-axis sensor fusion (3 axes for every sensor) to get the best possible measurements.
By default, we program the board with our firmware for localization and tracking. However, it is possible to reprogram the microcontroller to suit your own needs. Using the debug pins (SWD), you can load your custom code on the microcontroller of the board. We provide you with detailed tutorials and example files that take care of all the configuration: gpio pins, leds, and all the sensors (through SPI or I2C).
