Princess Cruise Lines Uses WiRa Technology From Renesas To Deliver A Customized Passenger Experience

Princess CEO John Padgett talks about transforming the cruise industry with the Renesas DA14695 multi-core Bluetooth® SoC with WiRa in their onboard medallion system to monitor 4,000 Wi-Fi access points, 2,000 crew devices and 8,000 sensors in real time.

WiRa™ Technology

WiRa (Wireless Ranging) technology offers fine-grain, phase-based ranging performance approaching UWB (ultra-wideband) accuracy, while using significantly lower power, extending battery life, and lowering solution cost, including advanced and proprietary algorithms to deliver enhanced performance.

Current Bluetooth® low energy market solutions for distance measurement and positioning are based on measuring the strength or power of the received radio signal, known as Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) measurements. However, these received power measurements may be inherently flawed due to the sensitivity of objects in the radio path blocking or reflecting the radio signals.

WiRa uses a proprietary radar-like implementation for highly improved distance measurement accuracy between Bluetooth LE connected devices. By interleaving Bluetooth LE data packets with constant tone frequency exchanges, the DA1469x on-chip 2.4 GHz radio generates the signals needed for phase-based ranging. The high resolution on-chip sampling of radio waves provides high quality IQ samples that form the input for distance determination. Data processing algorithms filter the data for noise, interference and reflections, to produce the shortest over-the-air signal path length as an accurate distance output.
