LaterationXYZ, an emerging German technology startup, is making advancements in ultra-wideband technology (UWB).

The company has achieved UWB-based localisation precision comparable to traditional laser systems and surpassing conventional GPS systems.

The technology ensures consistent accuracy in challenging environments such as dust, dirt, and low light conditions, and is both power-efficient and wireless.

It also promotes construction safety and enhances process coordination down to the millimetre, while providing essential data for digital twin oversight to amplify construction efficiency.

NXP Semiconductors has already integrated parts of LaterationXYZ’s technology into their operations, which could be beneficial in areas such as Building Information Modeling, autonomous construction vehicles, automation, Artificial Intelligence, predictive maintenance, and structural health monitoring.
