Grizzly Analytics announces the publication of a new report analyzing the Indoor Location Testbed which took place at the GeoIoT World Conference in May, 2016. This report analyzes ten indoor location solutions, from eight companies, evaluated along a wide variety of metrics.
There have been indoor location competitions in the past, which often evaluated indoor location solutions in terms of a single measurement of accuracy. In this testbed, Grizzly Analytics has measured many more metrics, including real-time location accuracy, location accuracy after stabilization, time to stabilization, accuracy consistency, set-up time, numbers of beacons or locators deployed, and more. This makes the evaluation much broader in scope and relevant to a wide variety of applications and requirements.
Two solutions were the top performers in the phone-based segment. One solution was the top performer in the infrastructure-free segment. One solution was the top performer in the dedicated hardware segment.
More generally, this report demonstrates a number of significant conclusions. One is that all solutions delivered accuracy better than 4 meters after stabilization, and several delivered accuracy below 2 meters. Another is the strength of the infrastructure-free segment, often thought to deliver much worse performance than beacon-based solutions. Another is the strength of SLAM and SLAM-like technologies.
This report is a must-read for everyone working with indoor location technologies, everyone in the mobile arena that would benefit from integrating indoor location technologies, everyone with a large site that would benefit from deploying indoor location solutions, and anyone wanting to evaluate indoor location companies.
