EU Approves General Usage of Ubisense Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Active RFID Location System

2/28/07 - A harmonizing decision of the European Commission has been adopted today outlining the mandatory conditions for the use of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology across the 27 member states of the European Union. UWB is a radio technology which sends low energy pulses across a wide spread of frequencies enabling high data rate communications, imaging of objects through walls and high precision location tracking

Ubisense Graph Transponder Frequencies UWB Ultrawideband RTLS Realtime Location System - Active RFID. View Multimedia Gallery Ubisense, headquartered in Cambridge, England has developed an advanced real-time location system based on UWB technology. The system received FCC certification in U.S.A. in 2004 but up to now was only available to European companies and organisations for research and evaluation purposes.

"Finally it will be possible for our European customers and partners to roll out solutions based on our technology for production usage" commented Richard Green, CEO of Ubisense. "In conjunction with the recently released ETSI standard for Location Tracking EN 302 500, we can now obtain the appropriate CE certification for our products".

The Ubisense system enables logistics and manufacturing companies to locate and track important assets and vehicles, improve operational processes and ensure that workers can operate more safely in hazardous environments, particularly inside buildings. Ubisense active UWB tags provide an important extension to the range of active RFID transponders available in the market place in that they may be located and tracked in real-time to an accuracy of 15cm at ranges exceeding 100m. The attached table illustrates where the new UWB frequencies are positioned with respect to traditional technologies.

UWB is particularly important when locating objects inside buildings because the sensors can differentiate between directly received signals and those resulting from reflections off walls or metal objects. The low signal power used by the Ubisense system ensures that there is no interference with other wireless systems in operation.
