Ultra-wideband (UWB) makes shopping more intuitive and more satisfying, with deeper relationships between retailers and consumers.

With payments, everyone saves time. UWB enables secure, tap-free mobile transactions, so you can speed through the checkout process. Just approach the register, confirm the purchase, and you’re on your way. Your smartphone is also your access pass to enter an unmanned store, with UWB confirming your identity and authorizing the purchase of any items you select while in the store. You can even use your car as a payment card, with UWB enabling faster service at drive-through windows, gas and charging stations, toll plazas, and parking garages.

Retailers gain a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t, with analytics that reveal how many customers enter a store, measure how much time people spend in a given area or identify trends in shopping behavior. UWB also enables the next generation of targeted marketing campaigns, so you can see customized ads, based on data from your mobile device when you walk past a display or kiosk.

With conferences, tradeshows, exhibitions, and other types of large-scale meetings, event managers can make it easier for attendees to find their scheduled sessions, with indoor guidance to conference rooms and other meeting places. At the same time, UWB provides the event staff with detailed analytics on attendance, to monitor foot traffic and evaluate which activities were most successful.

UWB also accelerates the trend of drone-controlled delivery, with precise guidance to the location of your choice.
