I am currently conducting ranging experiments between two DWM1001 modules outdoors. However, I am not able to achieve the same range as mentioned in the datasheet.
I am able to get a range of upto 40m, however, the modules at this distance communicate intermittently. The intermittent behaviour starts at around 30 m itself.
My experiment involved placing the anchor and the tag on the ground.
Is it not possible to achieve localisation and ranging in outdoor environments with these modules?
Would mounting of the anchor points high up make ranging better?
I could find any option to increase the transmit power of the tag/anchor. Is there any way to increase this?
