I train with the Olympic running coach here in Colombia and am working on a project. I’m trying to develop something where sensors detect if two runners have more than x meters of distance between them. Both of them would wear something, e.g. a belt, with transceivers and electronics inside. If there’s more than x meters of distance between the two of them, a light or sound will be emitted.
I’ve been reading up on distance sensing between moving objects and it seems like a difficult thing to reliably do. UWB sensing looks like one of the better solutions. Would it be possible to develop something like what I described above using DW1000 transceivers?
Thank you for reading.
