Indoor navigation for UAV Drones

Recently we’ve been working on TopoRTLS integration with UAV drones. Idea is quite simple – to spoof GPS signal with signal from our system. Recently, we had successful tests with Pixhawk and APM controllers. Update rate of our system can go up to 50Hz which both controllers are capable to digest. Average achieved accuracy is […]

Indoor positioning and indoor navigation conference IPIN 2016 summary

  Another 7th IPIN conference took place in Alcala de Hernandes, Spain. This year, one additional track competition was added to entire conference. Previously existing tracks were developed for smartphone positioning, existing data post analysis and IMU only sensors positioning. We cannot mention here a result from South Korea participant, that was able to archive […]

Indoor and outdoor positioning system. Robots of an hour ago.

Nowadays technology makes a 40 miles step forward every time you blink. What is a world of tomorrow? Obviously – semi-robotic one. Star Treck might make you think that all these technologies are far away, but they’re not. It seems like in about 50 years by the time a new Sci-Fi movie gets to the theater, […]

RTLS accuracy vs update rate

Before we start,  let’s go over these therms meening. Accuracy is a degree of closeness to actual object location(in case of rtls). It’s measured in meter. Update rate is a rate that shows how many times per second our object location is measured. Update rate is is measured in Hz or times per second value. Let’s see what are […]

Assymetric TWR vs Synced OWR

During a development of new ranging system we had another discussion about assymetric TWR versus synced OWR systems. Let’s briefly go over both of them and then let’s see what the main differences are. Assymetric TWR system uses a system of three messages, poll, respond and final message. This method does not need clocks to be […]

RTLS application options – Part One

In general RTLS(real time location system) is used in cases where more accurate or more frequent update rate tracking is required. There are millions of niches where RTLS system can be used. Let’s review few of RTLS application options here:     Factories and warehouses. RTLS helps to track expensive tools at factories RTLS allows […]
