Especially in the industrial environment, production and processes in the course of Industry 4.0 are increasingly digitized and mobile. Real-time position information for location-based services (LBS) thus provides the basis for the realization of location-based applications.
Common localization technologies for LBS, such as GPS systems, are encountered particularly in buildings or constricted areas such as As production or industrial areas, to their limits, since the satellite signal is easily shielded. So that navigation and location-based information do not end at the building door, a technology is needed that works reliably everywhere. That is why Fraunhofer IIS offers awiloc®, a software solution specially developed for indoor use that can be easily integrated into a wide variety of apps.
Areas of application are e.g.:
- Location and emergency call systems for lone worker protection
- tracking tools
