UWB is a short-range, wireless communication protocol. In some ways, it is like Bluetooth and WiFi but differs by operating at much higher frequency radio waves. By continuously scanning the airwaves, devices with UWB can very accurately locate and communicate with other UWB devices.
While UWB has been around for decades, it only within the last year or so that large smartphone manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung and Bosch have started to include UWB technology into their products. In this sense, ARIN Technologies has been ahead of the technology adoption cycle by developing and producing UWB-enabled products for several years.
