Abstract

We present an overview of physical and mediumaccess- control (MAC) layer research for communication and localization in ultra-wideband (UWB) sensor networks for industrial applications, and provide a summary of our results obtained under the umbrella of the EU Integrated Project PULSERS. The focus of our work is on fundamental questions about UWB channel modeling, UWB channel capacity, efficient signaling, low-complexity MAC design, and localization and imaging.

Keywords

ultrawideband communications (UWB), sensor natworks, positioning, ranging, channnel measurements, capacity, noncoherent, MIMO, medium-access control (MAC)
