Introduction.- Communications Technologies.- Radio Frequency Positioning.- Global Positioning System.- Non-radio Indoor Positioning Systems.- Some Real-World Indoor Location Systems.- The Business of Location.
Focusing on the special challenges posed by accurately pinpointing a location indoors, this volume reflects the distance we have come in the handful of decades since the germination of GPS technology. Not only can we locate a signal to within a meter's accuracy, but we now have this technology in the most basic mobile phone.
Tracing recent practical developments in positioning technology and in the market it supplies, the author examines the contributions of the varied research-in silicon, signal and image processing, radio communications and software-to a fast-evolving field. The book looks forward to a time when, in addition to directing your road journey, positioning systems can peer indoors and guide you to an available photocopier in your office building. Featuring standalone chapters each dealing with a specific aspect of the subject, including treatments of systems such as Zebra, Awarepoint, Aeroscout, IEEE 802.11, etc. This study has all the detail needed to get up to speed on a key modern technology.
