Abstract

Ultra Wideband technology (UWB) is an emerging technology that has proven to be quite suitable for short range applications. This paper is part of an ongoing research for using UWB technology for positioning team-sport players on a playing area, Simulation is conducted for a number of "players" who are carrying RFIDs transmitting signals with biometric information data about each player to a number of receiving antennas positioned around the field. We investigate the performance of UWB wireless systems using a novel partially developed fading channel and a novel SIMO diversity combining scheme with respect to the transmission range of the UWB devices. The main goal is to determine the required transmission power in order to get an acceptable QoS over the covered area in which the players are being tracked. The results showed that, UWB system is an excellent choice for such short-range applications.
