Data Over Sound
sonarax sound waves protocol

SONARAX’s protocol harnesses the power of
soundwaves, which are the only connectivity medium
that can be contained within a defined location, as they
do not travel through walls, ceilings, floors, or dividers.
This empowers the ability to detect the precise location
of an audio signal and verifies its precise physical
presence.

SONARAX Technology’s platform is able to calculate
distance with incredible accuracy by using the doppler
effect’s slight modulation in the sound waves. This
modulation, in conjunction with SONARAX Technology’s
proprietary algorithm, enables the application to
measure the distance between users in real-time.
