The EUWB (Coexisting Short Range Radio by Advanced Ultra-Wideband Radio Technology, FP7-ICT-215669, www.euwb.eu) project has been an industry-led initiative of twenty-one major industrial and excellent academic organizations from Europe and Israel targeting innovative improvement, adaptation, integration and application of short- range Ultra-Wideband Radio Technology (UWB-RT). Started in April 2008, the EUWB project has leveraged and enhanced the scientific knowledge base in the advanced UWB-RT and has provided sophisticated new applications enabled by UWB and highly demanded in several European key industrial sectors such as home entertainment consumer electronics, automotive, public transportation, and heterogeneous cellular networks. Within EUWB, major fields of this emerging challenge have been identified, such as the cognitive radio related Detect-And-Avoid (DAA) technology and the localization and tracking (LT) technology. An important aspect is to design an LT protocol. In this manuscript the authors will first illustrate the technical approach of EUWB, giving a brief overview of the project.
