Wherever city life takes you, ultra-wideband (UWB) enhances the urban experience.
Your smartphone gives you precise indoor navigation, even in large structures like multi-story shopping centers, parking garages, and office buildings. Also, quickly validate your identity, even in a crowd, for faster entry into restricted areas, such as government buildings or entertainment venues.
With public transport, validate your ticket or access a reserved seat without taking your smartphone out of your pocket or bag. During rush hour, use your smartphone again to avoid lines, with hands-free access to express entry and exit gates that automatically validate your journey as you pass by.
Renting a bike or car? Your smartphone shows you where the nearest rental spot is and guides you to your vehicle of choice, even in a large parking structure. Or, if you’re taking a shuttle, UWB directs you to the pick-up spot, alerts the driver to stop, and even finds you an available seat.
When driving, UWB enables hands-free access to unlock your car and creates a digital key that you can share with anyone who borrows your vehicle. At parking garages, the gate opens automatically as you drive up, then loads a digital parking ticket into your smartphone and alerts you, once you leave, to confirm payment.
UWB is also part of vehicle autonomy, with fast, accurate V2X* communication. With new services for Automated Valet Parking, for example, parking is as simple as leaving your car in the drop-off area. Activate the smartphone app, and the precise positioning of UWB guides your car to its designated spot. Activate the app again when you want your car, and you’ll find it ready and waiting at the pick-up spot when you arrive.
