A common clock source is required in a wide variety of connected things.
For instance, accurately timestamping sensor data coming from radars, LiDARs or accelerometers, is required for labeling datasets used for training in machine learning and sensor fusion applications. Similarly, in industrial applications, dependable and synchronized reaction must be assured in safety-critical wireless sensor and actuator networks. Tight synchronization is also the foundation of many real-time locating systems and time-division multiple access wireless communication schemes. A perfect schedule of data transmissions also unlocks an optimal wake-up scheme, in which battery life is maximized.
RedNodeLabs’ wireless mesh technology enables breakthrough applications. In this article we introduce one of them: real-time infrastructure-less localization.
Positioning IoT nodes with centimeter accuracy is a big challenge for industries like sport and logistic. Current solutions based on GPS only work outdoors, and the resolution (a few meters) is not enough to satisfy the requirements of many applications. Solutions based on Ultra-wideband (UWB) have excellent precision, but they require costly infrastructure deployment.
We founded RedNodeLabs to develop innovative Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that enable connectivity even in the most demanding scenarios. This includes monitoring and tracking applications in the noisiest and most crowded environments.
We develop efficient and extremely dependable wireless mesh networks, based on our award-winning flooding protocol: RedNodeBus.
RedNodeLabs uses mesh networks in its solutions. Even when cellular IoT tries to solve every connectivity problem by sending the data directly to the cloud, there are many applications which benefit from the optimal latency, high scalability and low cost of a mesh network.
