Accurate and reliable distance information is essential to a variety of wireless applications, and ultra-wideband (UWB) signal can theoretically achieve centimeter-level ranging accuracy. In this paper, we design and implement an UWB-based anti-lose system, using commercial ScenSor DWM1000 module. The centimeter-level ranging accuracy of the system is shown under both line-of-sight (LoS) and non-line-of-sight (NLoS) experimental conditions.
