The GeoIoT World Indoor Location Testbed was the first event to evaluate and compare indoor location solutions in a real-world manner, measuring a wide variety of metrics. While others focus exclusively on accuracy, our testbed measured latency, time-to-stability, consistency, set-up time, numbers of beacons used (when relevant), and more. We are also segmenting our analysis along a number of dimensions, including the use of dedicated hardware, sensor fusion, Bluetooth vs. Wi-Fi, and more.
The Testbed included ten solutions from eight companies, including two that tracked dedicated hardware, two that used Wi-fi signals of opportunity, and six that use BLE. Some integrate sensor fusion and some do not. The number of beacons deployed per company ranged between 12 and 30 for those who deployed beacons. Set-up time ranged from a few hours to several person-days. Collectively, these solutions represent the techniques used by the majority of mobile indoor location solutions on the market.
The companies that participated in the testbed are: BlooLoc, GipsTech, Here, indoo.rs, Lambda 4, Movin, NexToMe and Senion. BlooLoc and Here had two solutions evaluated.
Over the upcoming weeks we will first release preliminary results, and then follow up with a full report available for purchase. We also plan to release videos of the solutions in action.
