Link: New UWB Technology for Your Home, Car or Flight :: RadioComms

A radio technology that transmits data at speeds of up to 1 Gbps, uses very little power and can even determine the location of a person or object to within 50 cm, promises to revolutionise wireless communications. The EU-funded research is helping to make the leap from laboratory to market. New applications could include automated controls in vehicles and wireless communications on planes.

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio, also known as ultraband, uses a broad segment of the radio spectrum to transmit and receive data, giving it versatility that, over short distances at least, few other wireless communications technologies can match. At very high data rates it can be used to stream huge amounts of data very quickly – substituting and surpassing USB cables for interconnecting computers and mobile devices, for example. At low data rates, it offers a robust communications channel and, uniquely, real-time and precise positioning features, all at a fraction of the power consumption of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or other wireless technologies.
