Decawave and Runtime Improve Real-Time Location Services

September 11, 2018 Laura Dolan

Decawave and Runtime announced their support for an open source Apache Mynewt Operating System (OS) on Decawave’s DW1000 Ultra-Wideband (UWB) transceiver, providing real-time location (RTLS) applications with a reusable development environment and a framework for device-to-cloud lifecycle management and messaging.

The Apache Mynewt OS addition provides support for numerous hardware platforms and a wide range of network protocols, allowing Decawave to offer a unified code base among its development kits and hardware platforms. This affords easier accessibility to adoption of UWB technology and reduces time-to-market for developers. 

“The diversity of applications is exciting but also represents a real challenge as almost every customer requires a bespoke hardware platform with combinations of MCUs and wireless technologies like BLE to interface with handheld devices or long-range radio technologies for data backhaul,” said Paul Kettle, VP of Strategy Enablement at Decawave.
