Localino. DIY Realtime Indoor Positioning
Indoor localization systems are either less accurate or very pricy. With the Localino you are now able to build a very price competitive indoor location system. It is based on an Decawave UWB transceiver, a STM32F1 series MCU and the anchors offer also a wifi backup link. This way it can be integrated into any already existing wireless network and transport the ranging data to a server in nearly realtime. The indoor accuracy is within 10cm! The tag does not require Wifi, but if you want it, you can also add this to the PCB.
have a look at our instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/Localino-Open-Source-Indoor-Location-System-Arduin/
This is a do it yourself kit. It is designed to operate as a tag, but can also be used as an anchor. And its compatible to Localino version 1.0 and 1.3. (see the actual anchor / tag version version 1.0: https://www.tindie.com/products/kuek/localino-indoor-positioning-system/)
Localino 2.0 is faster than the Localino 1.0 and 1.3 as it uses an STM32F103 series MCU. This has also much more flash memory and ram. The version 2.0 is compatible with the old firmware, you simply have to change the SPI pin numbering. But we have prepared Arduino IDE .ino files for you and the entire Arduino IDE, that you can download from us.
It features 3 LEDs (1x PWR, 2x free to use) and many I/O pins, like I2C, CAN, UART, SPI etc. This way you can extend Localino with your own hardware, like GPS, display, IMU etc.
Localino 2.0 comes SMD pre-soldered. You just have to add the DWM chip and pin header for the ST-Link programmer. It then must be flashed using an ST-Link v2. We supply all required Arduino IDE files. You can use the free software, for example from github (e.g. thotro decawave lib) or our code, which also makes use of the mentioned library and comes for free and open source. The hardware is also compatible to decawaves API.
We also demonstrated a network with multi-tag and multi-anchor on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vubk64ok1TA). If you want a flashed device with our Localino 2.0 completely redesiged firmware, please let us know on order.
