CoreHW launches a highly accurate indoor positioning solution

CoreHW RABBIT (Rotating Antenna for Bluetooth Beacon and Internet of Things) solution is designed for Bluetooth 5.1, which has an unprecedented direction-finding feature. The new technology makes it possible for Bluetooth devices to determine the direction of a Bluetooth signal transmission and enables centimeter-level positioning accuracy.

CoreHW RABBIT is optimized specifically for Bluetooth 5.1 Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD) positioning application. This new, cost-effective solution by CoreHW is expected to disrupt the exponentially growing indoor positioning market.

The application areas include:

  • accurate indoor positioning (cm-level positioning accuracy)
  • asset tracking
  • location-based advertising
  • Point of Interest
  • navigation systems
  • aftermarket automotive applications

The components needed to take full advantage of Bluetooth AoA/AoD are a Bluetooth 5.1 capable transceiver, phase accurate switch and antenna array. The unique RF switch developed by CoreHW features 16 phase matched antenna ports, which can be used to drive single-ended or differential antennas.

As CoreHW’s goal is to be a one-stop partner for their customers, the company also provides custom antenna design service in addition to providing antenna reference designs and positioning algorithms.
