Embedded Programming and Ultra-wideband Positioning

What is Ultra-wideband Technology (UWB)? Put simply, UWB is a short-range, wireless communication protocol like WIFI or Bluetooth.

This calculation is using the "Time of flight method". A simple way to visualise it is - one UWB node sends out a "Hello message", seeing if any other nodes are out there, a nearby UWB node will hear this message then reply "hey I am here". The first node then uses the time it took to receive this message to calculate its distance relative to it.
