UWB Alliance members work together to support social distancing in work environments

With its very accurate time-of-flight distance measurement combined with ultra-low power consumption, Ultra-Wideband is the ideal technology to support contract-tracing and social distancing particularly in work, office and factory environments.

UWB consistently delivers up to 10cm accuracy and is already helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 today in multiple different ways.

Latest News:  We would like to thank all our Members for their contributions to produce our latest submission to the FCC.

We outline how Ultra-wideband has evolved to become a mainstream technology and respond to the questions asked by the FCC in the 6 GHz FNPRM.

What we do

The mission of the UWB Alliance is to be the voice of the designers and manufacturers committed to establishing ultra wideband (UWB) technology as a significant open standards industry.

With millions of installed devices globally, UWB warrants protection and coexistence with other radio technologies. The UWB Alliance seeks to foster growth through end-to-end and vendor agnostic interoperability programs.

Scope and Goals

Regulatory Focus

The UWB Alliance takes a proactive position to influence regulatory matters in our mission to:

  • Protect and develop coexistence strategies for UWB bands with new evolving radio regulations (e.g. 6 GHz)
  • Increase the utility of UWB globally through the expansion and adoption of UWB Standards worldwide (Emission levels, outdoor use)
  • Allocation of new spectrum (e.g. >95 GHz)
  • Influence country/regional regulation bodies to reach a world-wide UWB regulatory solution

Standards Focus

Working together with our members, we chair, orchestrate and promote end-to-end vendor agnostic interoperability built upon current and newly-emerging standards such as IEEE 802.15.4z in our mission to:

  • Establish Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology as a significant open standards industry
  • Promote 802.15.4 and other standards based UWB technologies
  • Define and propose interoperability profiles through multiple industry use cases
  • Define testing methodology for interoperability
  • Develop relationships to provide recommended test facilities

Advocate UWB Technology

As part of our mission, we advocate UWB technology and use cases to:

  • Promote verticals showing the value of UWB for IoT and Industry 4.0
  • Build a global ecosystem across the complete UWB value chain, from the silicon to the service
