What's Ultra-wideband?

Ultra-wideband uses a short, narrow pulse signal with a unique signature

that can be picked up by receivers equipped with a special chip. Because

the signal is emitted in intervals — fractions of seconds — it can be transmitted

across existing and widely used frequencies without causing interference.

The narrower the pulse, the more widely spread the signal, which reduces

the potential for interference with other frequencies.

In addition to carrying communications signals, ultra-wideband can be

used as radar. The pulses bounce off objects and back to the transmitter,

which interprets them to produce images more precise than traditional radar.
