ANT Wireless Makes IoT Work

We’re attending Consumer Electronics Show 2016! Be sure to visit the ANT Wireless Pavilion (#73723 & #73720) in the Sands for a glimpse at the current and future of ANT Wireless and the Internet of Things. Stop by to say hello and uncover the latest innovation for ANT Wireless.

Reach new heights at the ANT+ Alliance Symposium – NEW 2016 VENUE!

We are excited to announce the 2016 ANT+ Alliance Symposium will be moving to a new venue, high in the Canadian Rockies! 
Join us October 4th – 7th 2016, at the world renowned Banff Centre. More details will be revealed in the coming months, but be sure to mark your calendars for this must attend event.


ANT Wireless Releases First Interoperable Device Profile for Bike Radar Sensors

ANT Wireless announced the member early release of the ANT+ interoperable device profile for Bike Radar sensors, the cycling industry’s first-of-its-kind wireless standard supporting radar-based cyclist safety.
For bicycle commuters and road cyclists alike, vehicular traffic is a constant source of worry and potential danger. Knowing what’s in front of you is easy, but knowing what’s behind you is not. The new device profile wirelessly transmits live feedback of the relative distance and speed of vehicles behind the cyclist and displays this critical information in front of them so they can keep their eyes on the road.
