Building Software Solutions That Support Ultra Wideband (UWB) Technology
Ultra Wideband (UWB) communication is said to be the next big thing in tech, and the current progression of new mobile devices and app development is showcasing this to be true. UWB has been the talk of the town since 2019, when consumers first started seeing a growing presence of UWB in smartphones, and everyone is now eager to build the next mobile app that can work seamlessly with UWB. The good news is that since UWB is just now being massively supported by Apple and Android, you can be ahead of the game when building a mobile app that is positioned to work with this new technology.
WHAT IS ULTRA WIDEBAND (UWB)?
We have seen how Bluetooth and Wifi have completely transformed the tech world, and UWB is very similar to these. Ultra Wideband is a radio technology that uses spatial awareness for short-range, high-bandwidth communications such as data transmission. UWB uses elements from almost every emerging technology and it embodies a melting pot of the features that have been in high demand for the past 2-3 years such as:
Internet of Things (IoT): UWB is based on the foundation of connectivity, and it can help you detect your missing keys and control various items in your house such as your thermostat and lights.
Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality (AR/VR): Similar to augmented reality and virtual reality, UWB works with ‘spatial awareness’. UWB technology has to use your surroundings in order to carry out different functions.
Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML): UWB uses artificial intelligence / machine learning for high accuracy when sensing the environment through an error mitigation process.
HOW DOES ULTRA WIDEBAND WORK?
The radio waves for UWB operate at very high frequencies (frequency range between 3.1 to 10.6 GHz), with a bandwidth of at least 500 MHz, making it one of the most accurate short-range positioning and sensor technologies to exist yet. Using billions of radio pulses that are sent every couple of nanoseconds, the UWB radar allows for greater connectivity with seamless transmitter to receiver delivery.
REAL LIFE USES OF UWB
There is endless potential for UWB to be applied in the real world, and it can certainly simplify everyday processes that may otherwise feel cumbersome.
If a person has a phone with UWB enabled, they can simply point their phone at the car and the lock would automatically open. Not just for cars, people can unlock their house doors and other doors as well. Your phone becomes your keys, and you can carry out multiple functions through your mobile device.
Another way UWB is being used is to help employees maintain social distancing practices at their workplace during the pandemic. Location-based sensors can warn employees if there are other employees coming in close proximity so that the right actions can be taken to keep the distance.
Apple introduced UWB in the Iphone 11 when it was released in 2019, creating a great deal of buzz around this new communication protocol. Their U1 chip allows UWB to work with many Apple-exclusive features such as AirDrop and AirTag. Apple has been given most of the credit for making UWB technology popular and stirring the growth of the UWB market, and their communion with the growing technology is not just limited to Apple’s smartphones; you can now see it in their smartwatches, Homepod mini, and their CarKey system (as discussed earlier).
It was recently revealed that Google added an Ultra Wideband API in Android. Following Apple’s adoption of the technology, Samsung released the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, both which include UWB. Developers can now build apps that can easily work with these Android devices.
The quick adaptation of Ultra Wideband technology is urging entrepreneurs and businesses to build apps that can work seamlessly with this unavoidable trend. Schedule a FREE 2-HOUR CONSULTATION with us today to discuss how we can build your mobile app with UWB integration.
