Real-world proximity sensing
An intern tried to program a proof-of-concept in autumn. We have got the impression that the framework does not appear to be that ready: the code worked in theory (simulation), however, in practice we never obtained a stable connection. This has been with an iPhone and an Apple Watch, though, and I wanted to continue experiments with two iPhones between the holidays. Possibly, i(Pad)OS 15.1 or 15.2 include some bug fixes in this regard.

Unfortunately, AirTags cannot be used aside from Apple's “Find My”. I have not yet done any measurements on how precise its values are. My first impression has been that the direction is a bit off. This is also something to play with while having some days off.

I could not get a hands on any other UWB devices and the hardware developer kits appeared to be … rare and expensive. So, all in all it is pretty much early stage work in progress.
