Ultra Wideband, Or The UWB, Is The Latest Thing That Will Take The Smart World By A Storm
A new chip has been included in new mobile devices over the last year or so – they have not received as much attention as they should get. It is called the Ultra Wideband (UWB) chip and will set a whole new perspective of the Internet of Things (IoT).
UWB, as its name implies, can send or receive a relatively large amount of data, but only over short distances.
The chip uses less power than most radio waves, such as Wi-Fi, and it can be used to accurately measure distance, direction, and location within its range. Most of the latest devices, such as Apple’s iPhone 11 & iPhone 12, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and Google’s Pixel 4 phones have this chip which will help in spatial awareness of the phone.
With this chip embedded in keys, the traditional way of Bluetooth can bring you close to the device but cannot point you to the exact location of the device. This is where UWB useful. They can also sense gestures, something that was used in Pixel 4. There are multiple use cases of the UWB chip, most of which are still under development. Imagine the hallway light up as you walk through it and the lights switch off once you are away – something that is only possible using the UWB!
