Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/23/2016, Location: Europe

As part of its joint initiative with Decawave, a leader in ultra-wide band (UWB) Micro-Location semiconductors, to simplify how developers utilize UWB location-awareness nanotron Technologies, the leader in easy-to-use solutions for location-awareness announces the market launch of its new swarm bee ER location sensor at Embedded World 2016 in Nuremberg, Germany.

In the product name the suffix ER stands for Enhanced Resolution and signifies Micro-Location with UWB from Decawave achieving 10 cm location accuracy. The new product belongs to nanotron’s family of swarm bee modules. All of them utilize the same common swarm API and target the growing market for autonomous smart items. Smart items combine wireless data communication capabilities with location-awareness and serve as a platform for sensors and actuators.

The new swarm bee ER module is going to serve applications for distance or location information between 0 and 20 Meter. It complements the existing swarm bee LE Chirp-based product that supports the range between 10 and 500 Meter. “Enhanced resolution of Ultra-Wideband Technology is perfectly suited for high accuracy in the close proximity range below 20 Meter.” explains Thomas Foerste, Vice President Sales and Marketing at nanotron Technologies, adding “This accuracy is required for instance to create exclusion zones that ensure machine operator safety in mining and industrial environments.”

Very precise location-awareness continues to become mission-critical for safety and productivity in industrial IoT markets.
