Ever wanted to try UWB RTLS for your pilot projects or startup experiments? Or maybe even for larger installations, but with reduced costs and greater flexibility for hardware? Some DIY hardware options to play with your existing Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone?
Meet WiBeagle – DIY version of Leantegra UWB anchor, compatible with Beaglebone! The following is included:
SD card image with Leantegra UWB stack – simply download and launch, no need for configuring or coding. This is a firmware image based on Ubuntu Linux, so you can upload your custom applications too.
