  • RISULTATO

Key objectives of EUWB are to:
i) explore the enormous economic potential of the ground-breaking Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radio technology,
ii) extend the UWB concept with advanced cognitive radio, multi-band/multimode networking, and multiple antenna system concepts,
iii) enable the introduction of advanced services and competitive applications using the radio spectrum in a sophisticated manner.
The advanced scientific and technical project work will be accompanied by activities in European and worldwide regulation and standardisation bodies in which EUWB partners are highly committed. As a key for economic success of UWB, the project partners will continue to devote significant efforts to participation in CEPT ECC, IEEE, ITU, ETSI, and ECMA, working towards consensus building and iterative improvement of the initial European and world-wide UWB regulation and standardisation.
UWB technology enables gigabits per second short range communications and inherent precise real-time location tracking. Prominent examples to be implemented in the EUWB project are the Intelligent Home environment, the Public Transportation environment, the Automotive environment and the Next Generation of Heterogeneous Public Access Network environment, following a strong demand from the mentioned industry sectors.
EUWB is an industry-led initiative of 21 major industrial and excellent academic organisations. It will build on previous projects, such as PULSERS, and take into account stakeholders of the whole value chain. Major aim is to consolidate the technology advances in scientific areas related to UWB and to define system concepts for the envisaged four application areas. The results will be materialised in four application platforms built on the open UWB technology developed in EUWB. Besides integration in the AIRBUS plane, the DAIMLER car, the PHILIPS future home, and the TELEFONICA access network, scientific studies will guide industry to gain competitiveness with their UWB system.
