In the epoch of automation, the ability to navigate devices and persons has become increasingly important for rising number of applications. With the emergence of GPS (Global Positioning System) the outdoor positioning has become outstanding but many applications require coherent positioning capabilities in all the environments. In view of this, indoor positioning has become a focus of research and development in the past decade. The number of relevant requirement parameters is large like accuracy, integrity, coverage, latency, update rate, availability, costs, robustness, infrastructure, privacy. Along with the diverse number of technologies available, making it further complex to match a suitable technology with an application.
The navigation, imaging and positioning solutions has number of applications ranging from location based services in indoor environments, detection of lost items at home, ambient assistant living systems, in hospitals for location tracking of patient, medical equipment and personnel in emergency situations, in social networking to govern social integration, environmental monitoring to observe phenomena such as heat, humidity, pressure, air pollution and deformation of structures. WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) is set-up to monitor these parameters in indoor as well as outdoor space via organization of multiple sensor nodes. It has significant benefits in rescue and fire services, law enforcement such as instantaneous detection of theft, crime scene recovery, geofenceing. Mass application is in intelligent transportation to provide seamless navigation for vehicles through extension of road guidance inside parking garages. In industry it plays a critical role in the automatic manufacturing, for the development of intelligent systems. These systems act as an essential functional element in the smart factories for improvement of safety systems, intelligent worker protection and collision avoidance. In Logistics and Optimization, it is quite essential to have information about the location of assets and staff members. In Western economies, one tenth of the GDP contribution comes from navigation systems. In the coming decade the navigation, imaging and positioning solutions market will see a massive boost with the introduction of advanced technologies and satellites.
