Hello to all the UWB Community.
This is a suggestion for Decawave (now Qorvo), which can benefit both parties Decawave and UWB Developers.
1.-As we have recently seen the phenomenon of the pandemic COVID-19 has opened many sales / business opportunities for many companies that offer solutions based on UWB, products focused on increasing and verifying social distancing.
2.-Currently there is the DWM1001 module which is a very powerful Swiss Army knife capable of solving these applications without problems.
3.-a disadvantage is that, to solve this type of applications, it is necessary to write a very complex code that contemplates the coexistence of thousands of devices and can operate correctly with a scheme similar to the one used in PANS 2.0.
4.-Not all the UWB companies are allowed by time to write this code, because the clients are demandings the devices right now to reopen their business and enforcé social distancing.
5.-If Decawave offered a firmware or source code that had the application of multi ranging, that would instantly cause sales of DWM1001 and IC DW1000 modules to skyrocket by thousands, this would benefit both parties.
As a C.T.O. this is my Suggestion for Decawave (now Qorvo):
6.- Currently companies such as LEAPLABS or Nordic Enterprises LTD have a firmware that solves this problem, if Decawave reached a commercial agreement with these companies to offer a FREEMIUM-type licensing in the same way that it was done by me, I assure that the requests for DW1000 and DWM1001 would skyrocket by the thousands.
Thank you for your attention.
