See great indoor location tech from the 2017 testbed

The videos from the Indoor Location Testbed at GeoIoT World 2017 are now released! Here is your chance to see how these solutions performed in our real-world evaluation, in the videos below. The testbed evaluated each solution by walking around a real-world venue, the GeoIoT World 2017 conference, measuring performance at 10 pre-selected points.

Click here for the testbed report, which analyzes each solution's performance in a wide variety of metrics, including real-time accuracy, accuracy stabilization, consistency, latency, floor change, first fix, setup time & more.

Let's start with BlooLoc's tag-based solution, which achieved accuracy under 2m in real-time and under 1.5m after stabilization:




Then let's look at the infrastructure-free solution from GipsTech, which achieved accuracy under 2m without using any beacons or radio signals:




Next is GipsTech's solution with BLE added:




Next is BlooLoc's phone-based solution:




Finally, we see Accuware's solution…

Why I'm Buying the OnePlus Five

Every iPhone release is followed quickly by a rage of articles by iFans who are sure it will be the best thing ever and iCynics who disagree. The number of articles by fans of other devices or device-makers pales by comparison. So I decided to write an article on why I'm excited by the just-announced OnePlus Five. I rarely buy a new device before my old one dies. Not that I don't want to - I've seen all the new models at the Mobile World Congress most years, and love gadgets, but I rarely find it worth jumping to a new device, reinstalling all my apps and getting it just as I like it, just for minor improvements that don't change my experience much. So why do I want the OnePlus Five when my current OnePlus Two works perfectly well? In honor of the OnePlus Five, I'm giving five reasons. Reason one: RAM rules I bought the OnePlus Two because it had 4gig of RAM when none of the other top phones did. In fact, it took the market leaders over a year to catch up. I am con…

2017 Indoor Location Testbed - report now available!

The second Indoor Location Testbed, run by Grizzly Analytics at GeoIot World 2017, confirms for the second year that indoor location solutions are beating the previously established industry norms in all metrics of performance. Solutions evaluated this year achieved below 2 meter accuracy, in smartphone and in tag tracking, both with BLE beacons and infrastructure-free. Solutions deployed in under one hour setup. Solutions detected floor changes and maintained positioning accuracy while moving on stairs. Solutions achieved fast first location fixes within seconds of starting. All of these were evaluated and confirmed by our testbed staff, as detailed in this report. The 2017 testbed evaluated five solutions: One based on BLE tags, four on smartphones. One smartphone solution runs infrastructure-free, one incorporates camera-based image processing, and two blend BLE beacons with motion sensing. This Indoor Location Testbed is the only such testbed to evaluate a wide range of metrics. W…

Not too late for the 2017 Indoor Location Testbed!

It's not too late to participate in the Indoor Location Testbed at GeoIoT World 2017!



The testbed will be seen by the GeoIoT World participants, including representatives from Sony, Bosch, Aruba, ABI Research, Philips, Cisco, TomTom, Qualcomm, European Space Agency, European GNSS Agency, Ericsson, Proctor & Gamble Services, Orange, Yandex, and many more. Where else will you have an opportunity to demo to so many interested people, from top companies, devoting their days to Geolocalization and IoT?

The Testbed also offers you the opportunity to be evaluated in the testbed report, appear in articles on industry sites, and get quotable comments from Grizzly Analytics regarding your solution's strengths and benefits.

To discuss participation in the testbed, you can e-mail us at info@grizzlyanalytics.com, call us at +1-908-827-1580, chat with us live at http://m.me/GrizzlyAnalytics or e-mail the GeoIoT World organizer at rbricaire@strategiestm.com

We look forward to seeing you!


Only one month until the 2017 Testbed!

The 2nd annual Grizzly Analytics Indoor Location Testbed, part of the 2017 GeoIoT World Conference, will be held one month from today, June 7 and 8, in Brussels.
This is the ONLY testbed in the indoor location industry that evaluates solutions by more than a half dozen metrics. Other "contests" relate only to real-time accuracy, which doesn't reflect the many real-world considerations that venue owners have in selecting indoor location solutions. Our testbed evaluates real-time accuracy, stabilized accuracy, consistency, latency, set-up time in person-hours and total hours, proximity detection accuracy and time, indoor/outdoor integration, floor change detection, and more.

Want your solution to be validated in the metrics in which it shines? Whatever makes your solution unique, our testbed can measure it and validate your performance. Click here to download the specifications and register.

Want to see how a wide variety of solutions perform in these many metrics? Attend the…

Coming soon: 2017 Indoor Location Testbed

Coming soon in June: 2nd Grizzly Analytics indoor location testbed at the GeoIoT World conference in Brussels. 

The first testbed was great, with ten solutions from eight companies evaluated by a wide variety of metrics. And the second will be even better!

33 Indoor Location Technologies at Mobile World Congress 2017

The number of companies exhibiting indoor location technologies at the 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC) skyrocketed to 33!

Before MWC started, we released our Guide to Indoor Location at MWC, with 23 companies:


During the conference we notified our guide recipients of 10 other indoor location exhibitors that we saw. (Sign up here to receive our guide and to be on our mailing list for next year's MWC.)

This is many more indoor location related exhibits that previous years. The area is growing by leaps and bounds! Our recent report on indoor location technologies analyzed and profiled almost 200 companies!

Here are some videos, so you can see the technologies in action, followed by a list of the other indoor location companies that were at MWC.

First up is Philips Lighting, with high-accuracy indoor location positioning based on LED light modulation and visible light communication (VLC) technology:




Next comes Estimote, makers of Bluetooth (BLE) beacons, who introduced self-mapping b…
