Humatics Scholar

by Humatics

Overview

The Humatics Scholar line offers development kits for researchers and product developers, as well as educational tools for students and professors. The Scholar products offer broad and intuitive functionality for Ultra Wideband (UWB) precision distance measurement, ad hoc network formation, radar sensing, and signal processing. Our labs and kits are carefully designed to provide researchers with the tools they need to ramp up quickly, whether the end goal is demonstration, teaching, evaluation and research, or development and prototyping. For customers of Time Domain (now part of Humatics), the Scholar products are the same line of P440 modules you've relied on before.

Features

  • 2 centimeter precision
  • Up to 500 meter range
  • Robust performance
  • Ease of provisioning
