Keywords: clock synchronization, distance variation monitoring, millimeter-precision ranging

We demonstrated a simple technique for monitoring distance variation with millimeter precision between two remote sites using off-the-shelf wireless communication modules. The need for the flexible positioning of wireless devices is significantly increasing as more devices are being connected and new services are being developed that require devices to collaborate with one another. We showed that one can monitor distance variation by analyzing the propagation delay of the wireless communication signal between devices. We previously reported a technique for synchronizing clocks with picosecond precision by monitoring the time variation of two rubidium clocks located at remote sites. The precise measurement of the propagation time variation was necessary for the precise synchronization of clocks, and we used this information to estimate the distance with high precision. In a localized situation, our technique makes it easy to implement a millimeter-precision measurement system. Furthermore, it is less complex in terms of system design and can be a low-cost alternative to existing systems that require precise position measurement. We envision that this demonstrated protocol will be implemented in wireless communication chips and microprocessing units.
