BeSpoon’s cutting-edge technology can locate items or individuals to within a few centimeters, either indoors or out. This impressive feat is achieved by measuring the flight time of an ultra-wideband signal (between 500 MHz and 1 GHz) with a precision of 125 picoseconds.
The company’s chips can be placed on all types of easily-lost objects, like your keys, wallet, smartphone, laptop, and even your toddler’s favorite teddy bear. BeSpoon was created in 2010 from a research project at a Leti joint laboratory, and has already produced viable prototypes. The next step is to conquer the retail market.
