Take spatial awareness to the next level with UWB technology

Improving spatial awareness in robotics applications can be very challenging. The functionality of robots has evolved during the last years, and it is getting much more complex than the first robots. New applications appear, and robots now travel and interact freely with people in many different ways.

Do you want to bring robot spatial awareness to the next level?

At MobileKnowledge we have developed the MK UWB kit Robotics, a solution based on Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology that just does that!

With the MK UWB Kit Robotics, you will be able to:

  • Improve robot ability to position itself in the environment and interact in an effective way with other robots and humans
  • Obtain highly accurate and precise positioning data, even in indoor and challenging environments:
    • Accuracy: ± 5cm, ± 1º offset
    • Precision: ± 7cm; ± 4º std dev
  • Get an easy to integrate and flexible solution. The first UWB Plug & Play solution that can be adapted to the most common positioning use cases.
  • Obtain one of the most cost-effective solutions if compared to other positioning solutions.

MK UWB Kit Robotics

Add high precision spatial awareness to your autonomous robot even in challenging environments (low/no visibility, high density, indoor) at a competitive cost compared to other location technologies:

  • Accuracy: ± 5cm, ± 1º offset
  • Precision: ± 7cm; ± 4º std dev

Leverage on MobileKnowledge’s UWB Subsystem hardware and software to handle over 6 different use cases for multiple robotic applications. A true Plug & Play experience.

Experience and evaluate the technology immediately through off-the-shelf solution. Be ready to adopt UWB technology in order to differentiate your solutions from those of your competitors.

How does it work?

The UWB Subsystem contains the required HW and SW to manage the Discovery, UWB initialization and UWB ranging sessions against the UWB counterpart (which can be another UWB Subsystem or a mobile phone).

Connect it to your Host Robot, then use the existing drivers and use case examples on ROS2 and PX4 to leverage on the highly accurate and precise UWB ranging data obtained to bring your Robots spatial awareness to the next level!

Using Murata Type 2BP – world’s smallest UWB module and FiRa Certified.
