Research output: Working paperWorking paper/discussion paper


Current research on localizing objects and humans typically concentrates on a single technical solution in one of the following main categories: radio-based, acoustic, and image processing systems. Together with more matured systems (like GPS) numerous localization techniques coexist in isolation. But having a closer look on deploying localization systems in industrial applications several problems arise as the environmental influences differ too much to use one single technology. Moreover, the localization system needs to be integrated with other enterprise applications to enhance business processes.
