Pica

Pica is a virtual UWB Controller implementing the FiRa UCI specification. It has been designed for testing UWB ranging capabilities. Pica supports the following features:

  • Pica keeps an internal representation of a 3-D scene.
  • Pica lets multiple clients connect through TCP sockets. Each new connection spawns an attached UWB subsystem. Connected hosts can interact together as if they existed in a single 3-D scene.
  • Pica implements a nice GUI through a web server.
  • Pica provides HTTP commands to interact with the scene directly such as create and destroy virtual anchors.

Build and Run

$> git clone https://github.com/google/pica.git
$> cd pica/
$> cargo run

You should receive the following output:

Pica: Listening on: 7000
Pica: Web server started on http://0.0.0.0:3000

You can now open the web interface at http://0.0.0.0:3000 and the HTTP commands documentation at http://0.0.0.0:3000/openapi. The scene should be empty and look like this:

Pica empty scene

Command line

A command line tool is available to trigger some action such as creating an anchor. Run pica in a terminal then open a new one and do:

$> cd pica/
$> python3 scripts/console.py

If you hit Enter, the console will list you all the available commands:

device_reset                    Reset the UWBS.
get_device_info                 Retrieve the device information like (UCI version and other vendor specific info).
get_caps_info                   Get the capability of the UWBS.
session_init                    Initialize the session
session_deinit                  Deinitialize the session
session_set_app_config          set APP Configuration Parameters for the requested UWB session.
session_get_app_config          retrieve the current APP Configuration Parameters of the requested UWB session.
session_get_count               Retrieve number of UWB sessions in the UWBS.
session_get_state               Query the current state of the UWB session.
range_start                     start a UWB session.
range_stop                      Stop a UWB session.
get_ranging_count               Get the number of times ranging has been attempted during the ranging session..
pica_create_anchor              Create a Pica anchor
pica_destroy_anchor             Destroy a Pica anchor
pica_get_state                  Return the internal Pica state
pica_init_uci_device            Initialize an uci device
pica_set_position               Set the position of a Device

If you wish to create a virtual anchor:

$> cd pica/ && python3 scripts/console.py # If the console is not started yet
$> --> pica_create_anchor 00:00 # pica_create_anchor <mac_address>
$> --> pica_create_anchor 00:01 # Create another one

Architecture

  • Device UWB subsystem created for a connected host.
  • Session UWB ranging session opened by a connected host.
  • Anchor virtual UWB host, responding to ranging requests from connected hosts.

Http commands

Pica also implements HTTP commands, the documentation is available at http://0.0.0.0:3000/openapi. The set of HTTP commands let the user interact with Pica amd modify its scene.

Tests

Setup your python env:

python3 -m venv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install pytest
pip install pytest_asyncio
pip install -e py/pica/

Then run the tests

pytest --log-cli-level=DEBUG -v

The tests are located in ./tests/
