Ubisense ultrawideband location devices certified by US FCC


13-12-2004

Approval opens US market for location aware 'Smart Space' platform.

Ubisense one of the first companies to receive certification



From developing new and productive ways to utilize office space, to locating patients, medical staff and equipment in hospitals, to managing innovative lighting for stage shows, Ubisense Smart Space uses patented and patent pending technology to create an ultrawideband-based network inside a building capable of locating a person or object in three dimensions to within six inches in real-time. The devices comprising the platform have just received certification from the Federal Communications Commission to operate in the United States.



While traditional radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is becoming the standard for managing product manufacturing and the distribution supply chain of low cost items, Ubisense Smart Space takes location-based technologies to a new level, enabling automation of a space - and everything in it.



'Ubisense brings to life the spaces where we work,' said C. Warren Ferguson, chairman and CEO of Ubisense. 'It means businesses can improve the utilization and productivity of their space. Making informed decisions and working faster, easier and safer can result in significant cost savings and increases in production.'



Ubisense will demonstrate the Smart Space platform via live Webcast at 11:30 a.m. EST on Wednesday, December 15. To RSVP for the event, contact Chad Morris at Ubisense at PH: 720 283 1557 or Email chad.morris@ubisense.net.



Ubisense Smart Space is composed of a real-time software platform, a network of Ubisensors, badges that are worn by people or Ubitags, pager-sized devices, which are attached to an object or asset.



Unlike location systems based on conventional radio frequency technology, which work poorly indoors because the signals reflected off walls, desks, people and equipment (multi-path) are hard to distinguish from direct path signals, UWB short duration pulses are easier to process in order to determine which is the correct signal thereby increasing accuracy and reliability.



The Smart Space technology places no limits on the size of the area covered, or the number of people and objects located, scaling easily and incrementally from a small implementation running on a laptop to a campus-wide solution running on a cluster of Windows or Linux computers.
