At the conference Time Domain will demonstrate its PulsON 410 (P410) UWB OEM module, a small, low-power wireless sensor based on the company’s pioneering UWB technology.
“Our customers understand the real benefits UWB technology offers for unmanned vehicle localization and guidance – greater productivity, increased safety, the ability to operate in new environments – and are integrating our PulsON modules into robotic platforms in the defense, industrial automation, and entertainment sectors,” said Jon Hedges, Director of Sales and Marketing. “AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems 2013 is the perfect venue to highlight our customers’ successes while building relationships with new partners.”
The following are some of the mobile robotics innovators using Time Domain’s UWB technology:
5D Robotics uses PulsON modules as tags with their proprietary Behavior Engine (BE™) navigation software, allowing a robot to follow a human or other tagged object while avoiding collisions with other non-tagged objects.
iTrack designs and deploys autonomous precision navigation and tracking systems for defense, factory automation, and live theater productions.
Lockheed Martin is relying on Time Domain ranging radios as a key element of their Autonomous Mobility Appliqué System (AMAS) to provide safe and reliable autonomous convoying.
Exponent is developing UWB-based solutions for enhanced situational awareness and tracking.
Northrop Grumman is building a robotic cargo transport platform that uses UWB ranging to follow soldiers traveling on foot across unforgiving terrain.
Dataspeed has integrated the P410 module into their Smart Tracking Transceiver (STT), fusing UWB with GPS and inertial sensors for high-performance localization and tracking applications.
Time Domain’s location technology and several of its partners were profiled in the July 2013 Unmanned Systems magazine article “Ditching GPS.”
The company has introduced a ruggedized variant of the P410 module called the PulsON 412 (P412). The P412 has been certified by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and is being shipped to the company’s volume customers for application on unmanned and autonomous platforms, mining equipment, and rail maintenance vehicles.
