This paper presents the new approach to ZigBee ranging against the background of currently using techniques applied to positoning mobile robots. This new approach involves a phase shift measurement instead of standard time of arrival or radio signal strength approaches. The ZigBee device used in this study and preliminary tests of ranging and positioning performed using phase shift measurements are presented. The positioning results encourages for further research on the performance verification and algorithms for processing of ranging results.
