I’d like to verify my project idea before starting the implementation.
So far, I do have the MDEK Dev Kit. Tests showed, that in the environment in focus (industrial building) an anchor every 7.5m in x and y delivers acceptable to good localization results.
The questions are:
What module (e.g. dwm1001) shall I choose if the areas in interest are large, e.g. 60m x 130m which would result in 144 anchors in the given distance if all anchors were in one network (preferred solution). The project total would be 5 areas, each approx. 8.000m² or 40.000m² combined with up to 1.000 active tags, communicating over an ESP device via MQTT to AWS Cloud.
If one network per area is not possible due to limitations in the number of anchors per network, what is another way of achieving an UWB (Decawave) based RTLS solution for those areas, e.g. multiple networks.
If the solution is multiple networks per area, what preconditions have to be fulfilled? I read in other posts, that in this case none of the anchors from network A shall see any anchors of network B, but I am not sure whether I got that right.
Last question: Given multiple networks, either per area or (preferred) per building. If a tag moves out of network A into network B. Will it be automatically recognized by that network (e.g. tagged object moved from building A to building B) and what is the maximum number of tags given a network of either 144 anchors or the maximum number of anchors allowed per network.
