RF Ranging is happy to announce a new edition to its team. Roy Shea is our new Senior CS Engineer and will be a great asset to RF Ranging, Inc. His full bio is available on our About Us page.
We are pleased to announce that RF Ranging, Inc. received a SBIR grant from the National Science Foundation to help fund the research of our RF ranging technology. The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) will investigate ways to handle multi-path issues in Real Time Location Systems (RTLS). We use phase information and “packetized” range measurements from hopping between different frequencies to avoid interference from the environment, all this with low-cost, common off-the-shelf components! This grant provides us with the resources to make our ranging system even more accurate and reliable than before! For more information, see the Greina Technologies NSF SBIR Award.
The RF Ranging Base Evaluation Kit (RFRB Eval Kit) demonstrates Greina Technologies’ new RF Ranging system providing industry leading high absolute ranging accuracy (as low as a few centimeters) as well as new device tracking capabilities with millimeter resolution. Unlike chirp FM ranging methods, the RFRB ranging technology uses small bandwidth and rides on standard IEEE 802.15.4 messages in the 2.4 GHz ISM band.
Different from any other RF ranging and localization system, the RFRB measures not only the absolute distances to a device within a few centimeters, it allows to track them at a millimeter resolution at an update rate of more than 70 Hz. This opens up a whole new area where one can apply RF localization, like terrestrial and aerial robotics, where rapid and high-precision tracking is a necessity for control.
The RFRB Eval Kit comes in three different sizes, containing two (small), three (medium), or four (large) devices. They can be used to evaluate 1D (small), 2D (medium), or even 3D (large) localization scenarios.
The RFRB Evaluation Kit is available from Greina Technologies at http://www.rfranging.com. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
About Greina Technologies
Greina Technologies is a startup located in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was founded by Daniel Lee and Thomas Schmid in 2012, with the goal to commercialize ground-breaking RF ranging and tracking technologies for high-value asset tracking, logistics, robotics, automation, or safety applications in indoor and outdoor spaces.
