Measuring distance with the Nordic Distance Toolbox

April 07, 2022

The Nordic Distance Toolbox (NDT) is a set of methods for measuring the distance between two of Nordic's SoCs. The results from the methods are combined to calculate the distance. The NDT was added as an experimental feature in nRF Connect SDK v1.9.0. The nRF52833 and nRF52840 SoCs are supported, while support for the nRF5340 SoC is planned. In this webinar we go through the following content:

  • Introduction 
  • The physics involved
  • Short-range ranging
  • Nordic Distance Toolbox overview
  • Long-range ranging
  • Performance measurements 
  • Performance comparisons
  • nRF Connect SDK sample 
  • Supported hardware tools
  • Q&A from both sessions 

This is a recording of one of the two webinars held on April 6th 2022, with the Q&A section from both sessions appended at the end. The slide deck from the presentation can be downloaded here (direct download link).
