TSINGOAL Joins FiRa Consortium as a Contributor Member Bringing Expertise in Ranging/Location Services

The FiRa™ Consortium, a catalyst for bringing leading innovators together to drive UWB expansion forward, recently announced growth of its’ member network to include TSINGOAL(清研讯科) ,the leading UWB ranging/locating solution provider in China, as Contributor member. TSINGOAL is pleased to join Contributor members Sony and Xiaomi to bring significant technical and market knowledge to the creation of technical specifications that will result in an interoperable UWB ecosystem.

Headquartered in Beaverton, OR, the FiRa Consortium is a member-driven organization dedicated to the development and widespread adoption of seamless user experiences using the secured fine ranging and positioning capabilities of Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technologies.

The starting point for UWB technology is the IEEE standard 802.15.4/4z, which defines the essential characteristics for low-data-rate wireless connectivity and enhanced ranging.

It is the aim of the FiRa Consortium to build on what the IEEE has already established, by developing an interoperability standard based on the IEEE’s profiled features, defining mechanisms that are out of scope of the IEEE standard, and pursuing activities that support rapid development of specific use cases.

The unique capabilities of UWB promise to make it an essential technology in many areas including:

  • Seamless Access Control – UWB can identify an individual’s approach toward or away from a secured entrance, verify security credentials, and let the authorized individual pass through the entrance without physically presenting the credential.

  • Location-Based Services – UWB offers highly precise positioning, even in congested multipath signal environments, making it easier to navigate large venues such as airports and shopping malls or find a car in a multi-story parking garage. It also enables targeted digital marketing campaigns and foot traffic data. Retailers can present customized offers, government agencies can tailor their notifications, and entertainment venues can personalize recommendations during events.

  • Device-to-Device (Peer-to-Peer) Services – By providing precise relative distance and direction between two devices, UWB lets devices find the relative location of each other even without infrastructures such as anchors or access points. This allows people to easily find one another in crowded spaces or find items even when placed in hidden areas.

TSINGOAL, a leading UWB ranging/locating solution provider in China, has over 1200 installations in factories, warehouses, power plants and nursing homes. In joining the FiRa Consortium as a Contributor member, Rayson, CEO of TSINGOAL, says that “TSINGOAL identifies strongly with FiRa’s vision and wants to participate in activities to make the vision real”.
