I was wondering if there was any data about signal power loss through different materials, specifically 3D printed plastic (probably ABS, possibly PLA) and plastic warning cones (probably polypropylene). I have the TREK1000 evaluation kit using the DW1000 UWB IC.
I’m being overly specific with materials but I realize it’s unlikely to have that specific of data so anything that is approximately equivalent would be lovely.
What I am ultimately trying to figure out is how much inaccuracy is being caused by enclosing the antenna to protect it from collisions/environmental factors. Would cutting a hole in the enclosure the size of the signal wavelength appreciably improve my accuracy?
Many thanks in advance,
