About this Research Topic
The goal to find a solution, or multiple solutions for indoor localization, should be addressed considering multiple aspects including, for example, software and hardware architectures, algorithms data processing techniques, and indoor maps. The aim of this field of research is to find low-cost technologies that would become standard on smart-phones, robots, and all types of traceable equipment. Furthermore, such standards would work in all environments that are equipped with an infrastructure no more expensive than Wi-Fi and be adaptable to very different performance requirements. The possible applications range from meter and sub-meter level accuracy, like in shops or malls, to decimeter-level accuracy and high precision and reliability in an industrial environment.
This Research Topic encourages authors, from academia and industry, to submit new research results about indoor positioning and navigation, including innovative developments, technologies, and challenges related to Location Based Service (LBS) design and implementation for ubiquitous and pervasive application scenarios. In addition to the latest findings from research and ongoing projects, this Research Topic also welcomes review articles that provide readers with current research trends and solutions.
The potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Location based services and applications.
- Benchmarking, assessment, evaluation, standards, user requirements.
- UI, indoor maps, and 3D building models.
- Human motion monitoring and modeling.
- Indoor navigation and tracking methods.
- Real-world experiences.
- Privacy and security for ILS.
- Geo-spatial services and resource discovery.
Keywords: Indoor Localization, Indoor navigation, Location Based Service, Indoor Maps, Benchmarking
