IELS: Indoor Equipment Localization System: Conclusion (Part 6/6 final) (IoT)

Trilateration

Conclusion We conclude there is a gap between a few of the mentioned research papers¬† and the commercial products. Most ¬†researches are missing the practical usage of iBeacons and focus primarily on specific problems. However, all commercial solutions does not offer ¬†free-of-cost solutions. We think there is a place for Open Source standard software for….

IELS: Indoor Equipment Localization System: Discussion (Part 5/6) (IoT)

IELS use case

Discussion When this project started, the idea was simple. The goal was to localize objects inside a building environment in an easy and affordable way. This ¬†idea ¬†turned out to¬† be ¬†a wide ¬†research area, and lead ¬†to¬† try different approaches as explained in this chapter. We think adding walking steps, compass and gyros ¬†sensor….

IELS: Indoor Equipment Localization System: Evaluation (Part 4/6) (IoT)

Evaluation Evaluation is important and a key process in a project completion. This evaluation is to present the ¬†results of our system, for locating the trackable object position and track its (movement) repositioning over ¬†time using mobile smartphones as¬† data collectors. ¬†The ¬†usability of the system relies ¬†on ¬†the results collected from ¬†mobile smartphone over….

IELS: Indoor Equipment Localization System: Implementation (Part 3/6) (IoT)

implementation

Implementation 3.1¬†¬† ¬†Software architecture The software architecture is based on three main components, Mobile Client, Data Server ¬†and Admin Server ¬†as shown in figure ¬†3.1. Mobile Client is an Android application. Its main purpose is to collect iBeacon data such as RSSI-values and send it over to the data Server. Data Server is a Restful….
