Indoor Positioning using DW1000

Hi guys. I will be making a robot that will move across a room and I want it to know its 2D position relative to 3 stations or anchors.

So I've been researching and I found Pozyx which is very expensive. And I also find Decawave DW1000 chip. Here's the link:

which cost just around 12$. They are using the same UWB technology. Can someone explain to me why is Pozyx so expensive and

Is using DW1000 viable for my project? and if so, how do I setup the DW1000 to communicate it with my Arduino?

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Maybe that is why the Pozyx system is more expensive :slight_smile:

Are you capable of building a circuit board for a surface mount wireless chip?

...R

If you think you can create a system that works as well as Pozyx and sell it substantially more cheaply, there would be a very enthusiastic market.
