For testing purposes we designed two different awiloc®-Evaluati­on-Kits to help you to gain an idea of how your application will bene­fit from the localization in Wi-Fi networks.

Please ask for our demonstration and evaluation agreement.
Please don’t hesitate to ask for customized configurations and our terms and conditions for licensing.


System Requirements

Standard Wireless LAN transmitters can be used as infrastructure. The Wireless LAN transmitters need backbone no connection. Our evaluation-kit software is suited for Android API-Level 10 - 17 (v2.3.5 - v4.2).
15 MB memory and 10 MB data memory should be available. A stylus is helpful for the exact placement of training points. Most commercial Wireless LAN chipsets provide adequate measurement results. We will evaluate your specific Wireless LAN cards and mobile devices on request.
Recommended mobile devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 5.0, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Splus, Galaxy Nexus
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
  • HTC Sensation, Desire HD, Flyer
  • Asus Nexus 7
  • LG V900 Optimus
  • Sony Xperia S
  • Huawei Honour
  • Acer Iconia



There are two steps to be carried out before the software can be started the first time:

  • Upload of a bitmap (png, gif, jpg) as ground plan
  • Calibration of the system by using the Training Suite

With our Evaluation-Kits the software can be tested directly in its intended environment. You can use it to estimate the current wireless LAN infrastructure, visualize the location and then have a first look at the user interface.

Evaluation-Kit 2 additionally offers the »PositionInformation« programming interface with which you can develop your own application.
