Indoor RF positioning system

The purpose of this project is to develop an indoor radio frequency (RF) positioning system to track the position of a device within centimeters accuracy.
Unlike the Global Positioning System (GPS), the RF positioning system does not communicate with satellites in order to determine a specific location.
Instead, the RF positioning system utilizes tracking tags and anchors to track devices in indoor spaces. The ultra-wideband (UWB) technology enables the
DMW1000 transceiver chip to calculate the precise real-time indoor location within 10 cm of accuracy. The accurate position of a device containing the tracking tag will be calculated by measuring the distance between the anchors and the tracking tags. Overall, implementing this positioning system in a device will resolve the issue of precise, real-time tracking being inaccessible in indoor spaces.
