awiloc® alliance

Welcome to the awiloc® alliance

Fraunhofer IIS offers with its awiloc® alliance since 2008 the possibility for manufacturers, users and research institutions to join forces to realize innovative localization and navigation solutions in cities, buildings and industrial areas. The basis is the self-sufficient localization technology awiloc® for a terminal-based position determination that is accurate to a few meters and tested according to data protection laws.

The aim of the awiloc® alliance is to provide innovative solutions for intelligent, simple and precise positioning in cities and buildings. Whether searching for the departure track at the station, protecting single workers or tracking tools, awiloc® is always the basis for various mobile solutions that accompany, inform and support people on their way.

What is awiloc®?

The awiloc® technology is a licensable, self-sufficient indoor localization for buildings, cities and industry.

awiloc® enables localization on any objects via WLAN or BLE (e.g. smartphones, cameras)

awiloc® allows localization even without connectivity (e.g. driver information for forklifts)

awiloc® does not require any expensive or complex hardware (standard BLE and WLAN transmitters are sufficient), works without interfering with the IT landscape and is therefore also suitable for temporary installations

More information about awiloc® can be found here.

Technology in the hands

The availability of real-time location information with awiloc® inside and outside buildings enables the optimization of existing processes in many industries. The location information can be the basis for any location- and context-dependent application, such as:

Positioning of persons, e.g. for locating security personnel

Positioning of mobile end devices such as measuring devices in industry

Systems for resource planning, e.g. in facility management in logistics
