Abstract

The purpose of this project is to thoroughly compare the accuracy of UWB and BLE distance estimations. A ranging methodology is used to gather data with both technologies, and complex algorithms are used to realize distance estimations with MATLAB. Cramer Rao Lower Bound theory demonstrates that estimations made using UWB are both more accurate and more precise than those made with BLE, where UWB can correctly locate with centimeter accuracy, while BLE is limited to meter accuracy.
