Tracking an object present in indoor environment is termed as indoor location (or indoor localization). IPS (indoor positioning system) technology used for tracking objects can locate humans or objects inside a company using acoustic signals or radio waves gathered by handheld devices such as mobile phones. Emergence of indoor location systems have further provided enterprises higher accuracy across different venues, regardless the hardware used. Besides this, the system has helped many manufacturing units to manage their floor level efficiently.
There are several drivers, restraints and opportunities that has influenced the indoor location market to a greater extent. Factors such as need of reliable GPS technology in indoor location & the necessary improvement in public safety, are driving the indoor location market.
