    Information on atmospheric pressure may be used in local positioning systems based on wireless sensors networks. This paper discusses the possibility of improving positioning accuracy in multistory buildings. Also pressure sensor data are used to save radio bandwidth and thus to decrease power consumption of radio modules. It is applicable especially in the systems with server-centric control of r...

    Flexible warehouse systems gain in importance as the demand for seamless transportation of products increases. Conventional consignment systems rely on conveyors and human operators who assemble the goods. In a new approach, a swarm of small automated guided vehicles (AGVs) is employed to collect items from storage shelves and take them to a picking station. A challenging issue connected with this...

    Localization in previously unknown and GPS-denied areas is challenging, especially, when no infrastructure can be assumed. In this paper, we present a hybrid person localization approach for ad-hoc scenarios. Example applications are search and rescue operations, but also on construction sites or during maintenance tasks of large industrial plants. The outlined scheme is based on received signal s...

    The radio-based indoor localization and tracking of people and materials is an ongoing research issue. A typical localization system uses the received signal strength (RSS) values of a line of reference nodes (RNs) to determine the position of a radio transmitter with unknown position. The so called blind node (BN) should use low-power components for a long battery life and should also be weight-o... View full abstract»
