The Starter Kit contains all of the components needed to simple set up a small scale Ultra-wideband Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) network. RTLS pre-installed software and preconfigured hardware, ready to be used as a fully functional positioning system directly out of the box. 

Enables a Two Way Ranging (TWR) and TDoA RTLS-solution. In case of TDoA, anchors are synchronised using a wireless synchronisation algorithm. Simple demonstration and diagnostic software provides the user with immediate feedback and positioning information. The starter kit also supports demonstration of IMU (Inertial measurement unit).

Key Benefits

OpenRTLS’s Real Time Location System (RTLS) Starter Kit has been developed to allow customers to assess and test the benefits of RTLS applications based on Decawave’s DW1000 IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB compliant wireless transceiver IC.
  • Simple installation and setup.
  • 1 Ethernetconnection for the (master)anchor necessary; anchors can communicate wireless or wired. 
  • No additional software required.
  • No limitations extending the system
  • Two Way Ranging (TWR) and TDoA RTLS-solution enabled.
  • Rapid evaluation of DW1000 IC based UWB RTLS performance in different environments.
  • IMU tags sign on to the RTLS system and provide XYZ motion and orientation on the viewer and API.

**Softwarekeys for system performance upgrade (200Hz, 400Hz, 600Hz, 100Hz, 2000Hz) are available and can be added later.
