Fraunhofer IIS's self-contained Positioning Technology for Cities and Buildings

awiloc® References

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.



Multimedia guides equipped with awiloc® positioning technology make for a whole new museum experience.


Industry and Production

The awiloc® positioning technology also provides real-time position information for location-based services in the industrial environment as a basis for the realization of location-based applications, eg. B. for lone worker protection or tool tracking.


Public Transport

Pervasive personal navigation using awiloc® can facilitate the use of all transportation modes.



Positioning in inner cities can be improved by the awiloc® technology, a position determination solution that uses existing wireless networks.



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.



Whether at open-air sites or in trade fair halls, Fraunhofer IIS’s awiloc® positioning technology is on hand to provide guidance accurate to within a few meters.



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.



Indoor positioning means that games such as geocaching, which could previously only be done out in the open, can now be brought indoors.


Ambient Assisted Living

awiloc® technology facilitates ambient assisted living projects. These serve to unobtrusively assist the elderly and disabled in various aspects of their day-to-day lives.
