Ciholas’  CUWB Technology In Action.

The first step to successfully implementing the CUWB location system is understanding the tracking area in planning anchor locations. Survey accuracy is critical to the performance of the system. Any inaccuracies in the location anchors will be realized in the output location calculations.

Another aspect to keep in mind when planning anchor locations, is the line of sight between the tracking area and the anchors. It’s important that the anchors maintain line of sight as much as possible with the tracking area to produce accurate location data. Tripods are often used as a temporary installation solution, when ceiling mounting is unavailable.

It’s important to keep line of sight visibility from the tracking area to the anchors. Turn left, turn around, turn right, turn left, turn left, turn around. The CUWB system is a complete real-time location solution for your needs.

At Ciholas, We fill the gap from chip to app.

An Interesting project we’ve done is the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. This museum is four hundred and thirty thousand square feet of space that is covered by our system. It’s a very large scale, to single largest installation of UWB-tracking in North America currently. The design process for them was a complete cycle, starting for early conceptual designs, through prototyping phases, and definitely iteration back and forth with them improving the design.

There were several different stages that we went through. Early stages obviously involved a lot of software. From there we researched different ways of holding the device, whether it be a lanyard or straps. From there, we designed an enclosure for the device with the user interface in mind. The Museum opened in November of 2017, and since that time we’ve maintained a presence on site and remotely, troubleshooting any problems that might arise.

At Ciholas, we’ve developed an ultra-wideband system called CUWB.

This system is now being licensed by companies all over the world in their particular applications, from medical, to livestock, to forklifts, to tracking athletes, to tracking drones, and so forth.

When a tag is being located by anchors, line-of-sight is required to use the over-the-air timing information between the radios.

If a human body for instance, gets in the way, our system is capable of identifying the problem and weighting that information out of the location calculations to ensure accuracy.

Ciholas’ Ultra-wideband system is superior in a few ways in that the amount of locations per second that we can get is much higher than some of the competing sources.
