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….
