The problem of indoor localization
Different passive or active systems are used as technologies. One example of a passive technology is RFID, which has major problems with the detection rate in metallic environments.
Today, active systems are usually WLAN tags attached to containers or goods. The problem with these tags, however, is the high energy requirement and the relatively low accuracy (approx. 5 m).
Another system that has a certain range of application is GPS, which then only works on open spaces due to the nature of the system.
Disadvantages of the available systems
- Temporary Positioning (RFID)
- Insufficient battery life and therefore not manageable (WLAN, GPS)
- Expensive basic hardware (RFID and WLAN)
- Limited number of simultaneous containers (WLAN)
- Relatively inaccurate positioning (WLAN, GPS)
- Restrictions of use (RFID, GPS and WLAN)
- IT projects are always involved – no ready-made solutions
- Indoor positioning should be possible at any time
- Long service life (1-5 years without battery change)
- Small or, at best, no initial investment
- Unlimited number of containers
- (centimeter) exact positioning
- No restrictions on use (e. g. in the field of metal and welding)
- An IT project should not be necessary
