"OPENINLOCATION at CTTC"

OpenInLocation (an open lab for research on indoor location): The main objectives of this lab is to drive R&D and innovation in indoor location by evaluating state-of-the-art and commercial technologies in challenging environments, improving them in terms of enabling High-Definition Situation-Aware (HDSA) applications and services, and, finally, fostering collaboration to contribute with new ideas for indoor positioning, to disseminate results and outreach to new audiences beyond Newcom#. Using Raspberry Pi, Arduino or similar platforms, this laboratory allows the implementation, experimental validation and/or performance assessment of sensors and radio interfaces in both controlled and real-world environments, providing the user with practical, easy-to-reproduce-at-home hardware setups and software tools that allow focusing in location-related issues instead of spending time and money in building and programming a dedicated platform. This lab is composed of a set of low-cost, programmable nodes that can act either as anchor node or as a mobile node, the wireless interfaces for such nodes (WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, etc.), and facilities with adequate electronic measurement devices.
