It's all about location: How location-sensor systems are transforming industry today

What do 4% of the world's passenger vehicles that were built last year, the British Wheelchair Rugby Team, and Spiderman all have in common? They are all examples of things that have benefited from location-sensor technology. This talk will introduce how a state-of-the-art ultra-wideband radio location system works, and discusses some of the ways in which it is transforming manufacturing and other industries today.
