Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An indoor positioning system is a term used for a network of devices used to wirelessly locate objects or people inside a building. Generally the products offered under this term do not comply with the International standard ISO/IEC 24730 on real-time locating systems. There is currently no de facto standard for an IPS systems design, so deployment has been slow. Nevertheless, there are several commercial systems on the market. Instead of using satellites, an IPS relies on nearby anchors, which either actively locate tags or provide environmental context for devices to sense. The localized nature of an IPS has resulted in design fragmentation, with systems making use of various optical, radio, or even acoustic technologies.show more
