Telecom Museum Calls on UWB RTLS to Provide Location-Based Content
France's Cité des télécoms is installing a Ticatag system made with DecaWave's ultra-wideband technology.
Jun 08, 2015—
Cité des télécoms (Telecom City), a French museum devoted to the science and history of telecommunication, is installing an active RFID ultra-wideband (UWB)-based solution from proximity technology company Ticatag to make content about exhibits more interesting, accessible and interactive for visitors. The system is expected to be taken fully live this summer, with 32 devices known as Ticatag beacons installed around the museum, as well as 10 tablets running an app designed to display information based on the location of Ticatag battery-powered tags worn by visitors. The Ticatag beacons and tags are made with DecaWave's UWB DWM1000 transceiver modules.
The deployment follows a pilot conducted last year to test whether the technology could provide digital content to museum visitors with minimal efforts required by those individuals. Those testing the system were staff members and a limited number of members of the public.
Instead, the museum liked the idea of a solution that didn't require visitors to do anything (such as tap a tag), while it could also provide the service to those with disabilities who may not be able to reach tags in order to tap them with their phones.
