For many business sectors real-time indoor and outdoor positioning information optimizes their existing processes and paves the way for new applications and a competitive edge. The awiloc® positioning technology by Fraunhofer IIS has already been adapted to various settings such as entire city areas, exhibition centers, airports, museums, train stations, industrial buildings, and shopping malls.
Mobile information systems can help provide security even in advance of big events. awiloc® technology is also used to improve planning and control of regional evacuations and be better placed to adjust them to altered circumstances.
Industrial applications range from forklift localization that ensures palettes and goods can be tracked accurately and fully automatically to systems that locate mobile operating terminals in production operations.
