WASHINGTON -- Thought only cartoon superheroes could see through walls to
detect the villains?
New technology called ultra-wideband will soon allow mere mortals to detect
objects buried underground and to build cars enhanced with sensors that
help avoid collisions.
Ultra-wideband uses millions of narrow pulses each second to get an
