This article presents the IEEE 802.15.4a standard, the first international standard that specifies a wireless physical layer to enable precision ranging. As an amendment to the popular IEEE 802.15.4-2006, the IEEE 802.15.4a-2007 standard introduces new options for the physical layer in order to support higher data rates, extended range, improved robustness against interference, and mobility, while enabling new applications based on distance information of the devices in a low-rate wireless personal area network.
