SEQUITUR: An Ultra-wideband 3D Locating Platform for Raspberry Pi

SEQUITUR: An Ultra-wideband 3D Locating Platform for Raspberry Pi
SEQUITUR is a short-range and low-cost radio localization platform based on the ultrawide-bandwidth (UWB) technology providing high-definition 3D positioning in indoor and outdoor environments. It enables unprecedented localization accuracy at centimeter level not possible with other wireless technologies. It also enables robust wireless communication in harsh and cluttered environments, such as indoor or in industrial contexts.

UNiSET Company has come up with a ready-to-use add-on for Raspberry Pi which is capable of high-accuracy distance measurements for both indoor and outdoor environments.

SEQUITUR RANGING

SEQUITUR RANGING allows you measuring the distance between two Raspberry Pi (i.e., ranging) with accuracy within a few centimeters and operating distance of hundreds of meters. It works with Raspberry Pi computers equipped with the SEQUITUR Pi boards. Integrated solutions with stand-alone tags and extended functionalities are available with the professional version. SEQUITUR RANGING offers the access to the basic ranging and communication functionalities that allow you to develop your own positioning application.

SEQUITUR RANGING Kit includes:

- 2 SEQUITUR Pi boards
- 2 licenses for SEQUITUR RANGING firmware (running on Raspberry Pi)
- Demo application for fast setup and use (all platforms)
- API examples (C++, JAVA, Matlab)
- Extensive Technical Documentation

SEQUITUR InGPS

SEQUITUR InGPS Lite allows you localizing your Raspberry Pi, by deploying your own real-time localization system, capable of working also indoor with accuracy within a few centimeters and operating distance of hundreds of meters.
It works with Raspberry Pi computers equipped with the SEQUITUR Pi boards. Integrated solutions with stand-alone tags and extended functionalities are available with the Professional version.

SEQUITUR InGPS Lite Kit includes:
