Read Distances At Anchor


I want to read the distance between a tag and anchor pair through comms with the anchor. All the examples I have found read the distance from the tag.

Is it possible to do read the distance at the anchor?

Example 2 for “dwm_loc_get” in the “DW1001 Firmware Api Guide” (pg 40) is for an anchor node. Although, the distances returned are referenced to AN1…15, not tags.

I’ll play around to see what I can get, but would appreciate any advice.


No it is not possible to do this. The tag calculates the distances and then estimates location if possible. It does not send distances to the anchors, only to the BLE App for display.

OK, thanks. I thought this might have been the case.
