Lessons learned: Indoor Ultra-Wideband localization systems for an industrial IoT application

Leugner, Swen; Hellbrück, Horst ORCID

Since ultra-wideband (UWB) transceivers are available for wireless sensor networks, the usage in research and industry increased. Research efforts resulted in methods, measurement results, and solutions under laboratory conditions for a variety of indoor localization problems provided to the community. In this paper, we present an indoor positioning system (IPS) that is installed in a 1500m^2 real world production facility. In this real-world application, we faced some challenges that research has not addressed yet. For instance, challenges are receiving UWB signals from other floors in a multistory building through windows and multipath effects at walls like reflexions. We present solutions to increase the availability of such large-scale IPS, give a performance evaluation and recommendation for a modified NMEA sentence named iNMEA for IPS receivers.
