Cisco, Sewio Team Up Regarding Ultra-Wideband Access Points

From:chafanViews:57Date:2020-05-04

 Real-time location system (RTLS) technology company Sewio is partnering with global networking technology company Cisco Systems in the Czech Republic to build its ultra-wideband (UWB) receiver module into Cisco access points, thereby enabling precise localization of tagged items or individuals in industrial, automotive and other spaces, without the need for an additional RTLS anchor installation. The two companies announced the plan at Sewio Summit, Sewio's second annual summit for UWB industry members, which was held in the Czech statutory city of České Budějovice.

In addition to Cisco's plans, the summit served as a platform for several UWB-based announcements. SICK, a sensor intelligence company, indicated that it is partnering with Sewio to build its RTLS technology into SICK's asset-analytics platform for location solutions. Several solution providers described their RTLS deployments for different local Toyota manufacturing sites, and UWB chip company Decawave indicated that it is joining the Car Connectivity Consortium as the technology expands across multiple vertical markets, including into the automotive sector. That membership, the company says, will help it expand its own products into numerous markets, while it hopes also to support the expected growth in UWB for automotive entry, consumer goods and industrial deployments.
