How the Internet of Things Now Drives Location Technology
The number of devices connecting to the Internet is growing fast. The applications running on them require location context to determine the most likely use case. These devices need continuous location — not necessarily noticed or activated by the user, but always on. The specification that becomes important is energy per day: the device must maintain its location without draining its battery — and increase location availability indoors. That creates new design requirements for hybrid capability. read more

Continuous Indoor Positioning: GNSS, Wi-Fi, and MEMS Dead Reckoning

November 1, 2012By

By J. Blake Bullock, Mahesh Chowdhary, Dimitri Rubin, Donald Leimer, Greg Turetzky, and Murray Jarvis A new chip fuses input from several sensors, using the best combination at any given time to maximize coverage and accuracy while keeping power draw to a minimum. This produces continuous position availability in indoor environments, as demonstrated by performance measurements in real-world test environments.... read more
