Collision-free full-duplex UWB communication based on the Standard IEEE.802.15.4a

Using UWB for wireless short range, low rate communication is attracting growing interest due to its low power consumption and very high bandwidth. Regarding these qualities, it is comprehensible that there is an interest in the automation industry to use ultra-wideband-based wireless sensor nodes to replace wired systems, to save energy and to save costs without reducing the reliability of the whole system.

For this reason optimizations of the standard IEEE.802.15.4a were investigated in this paper with particular emphasis on latency, data rate, energy efficiency, and reliability. This paper demonstrates the optimization potential of the official standard IEEE.802.15.4a for collision-free full-duplex communication.
