Pervasive ultra-wideband low spectral energy radio systems phase II

Objective

The key objective of PULSERS Phase II is to continue exploration of the enormous potential of the innovative and disruptive radio technology embodied in UWB and to enable introduction of new services, applications and devices based on this technology. Progress at the frontier of technology in the technical project work will be accompanied by continuation of ongoing PULSERS activities in the European and global regulation and standardisation bodies.

The goal is to facilitate a globally compatible regulatory framework for UWB applications. Besides wireless short range communications with data rates ranging from kilobit per second (robust - low cost - low complexity - low power) up to gigabit per second (high performance - low power), UWB technology enables precise real-time location tracking inherently due to its unique feature of ultra-wide radio frequency band allocation. Widespread application of this new wireless technology will facilitate growth of a number of new market segments -all different, but all enabled by the unique features of UWB radio being highly scalable with regard to complexity, range, costs and data rate as well as location precision accuracy.

PULSERS Phase II, an industry-led initiative of 36 major industrial and academic organisations, will continue and extend the successful work carried out in Phase 1. The approach to be taken in Phase II is to consolidate and refine the system concepts developed, to place the technologies developed into the context of the system concepts, and to develop comprehensive verification platforms for these concepts. In particular, these results will materialize in five specific hardware platforms, each enabling verification of advanced short-range communication, and of innovative real time location and tracking system concepts.

The project will devote significant efforts to participation in IEEE, CEPT, ITU and ETSI working to support consensus building in the European and worldwide UWB regulation/standardisation.
