This local positioning system (LPS) brings indoor distance measuring to another dimension! Using ultra-wideband radio signals, this node based positioning system can track each node in an indoor environment to provide users with real-time information about where each one is. The use cases for a LPS range from aiding autonomous robots in an indoor warehouse to guiding first responders dealing with emergencies in unknown terrain. The possibilities are endless!
