The objective of QUETZAL project is to develop the algorithms and necessary hardware to obtain a pre-production prototype of UWB technology, that might reach long distances up to a 300 meters with low-data rate requirements. The prototype is based on Impulse Radio technology for Ultra-WideBand (UWB) applications, and will allow for a accurate ranging and positioning capabilities. UWB provides benefits with respect to traditional narrow-band communication systems, e.g. making the communication link robust to narrowband interference caused by systems occupying the ISM bands.
