Using a combination of anchors, tags and one listener it’s possible, using PANS1, to get ALL the tags positions and/or ranges via a listener. It’s also possible to get the INDIVIDUAL tags position/range via its own UART/SPI/USB.
What I would like to be able to do is get ALL tags ranges only (don’t want the position) but only using TWO (2) anchors. I don’t mind whether I get this from the anchors directly or a listener device but I don’t want to get it from the tags themselves, unless they can dump that data over Bluetooth or back over UWB rather than via their own UART/SPI/USB.
As far as I know the range is ultimately computed for each tag at the anchor itself before being forwarded to the tag(s) in question so here is my question:
- how do I get at that data from the anchors? If I can’t get it from the anchors, is it possible to get the data from a (modified?) listener?
Please bear in mind that I only want to use two anchors and get the range data from each tag (which is present on the tags UART/SPI/USB) with no physical connection to the tag(s).
