Wireless Technologies for Indoor/Outdoor Localisation
Join this 20th workshop of the Wireless Community and get an extensive overview of existing and emerging technologies for indoor/outdoor localisation and tracking.
Experts from both industry and academia will explain the concepts behind the localisation technologies such as received signal strengths, time-of-flight, angle-of-arrival, inertial sensors, etc.
You will get further insights via several live demos.
We will cover the more common technologies, such as those based on WiFi and Bluetooth signals, but also address localisation based on 60 GHz signals, (ultra)sound signals, and visible light. Ranging with mm-wave radar signals will be presented as well.
Finally, we will discuss metrics for an objective comparison of localisation technologies, and explain you how to select the best localisation system for a specific environment. We illustrate this by comparing some existing technologies.
We briefly discuss ongoing standardisation efforts for performance evaluation.
Our speakers will focus on the concepts and the technology, but applications will be touched as well.
