Communication and Localization Testbed
for Validation of Embedded Systems

A large-scale, indoor, publicly accessible, ultra-wideband and narrowband testbed




square meters



CLOVES is a large-scale public testbed, the first available for ultra-wideband (UWB). Narrowband IEEE 802.15.4 devices are also deployed alongside UWB ones. All devices are remotely accessible for firmware upload and collection of experiment logs. The different characteristics of the indoor testbed areas (e.g., narrow corridors vs. wide halls) cater to different types of studies concerning communication and localization.
