Bruxelles, May 26, 2016 – GiPStech indoor localization test and validation during the GeoIoT “TestBed” that evaluated ten solutions from eight companies crossing the spectrum of indoor location
Today we participated at “the Testbed” organized by Grizzly Analytics to assess performances of indoor localization technology during the GeoIoT conference in Bruxelles, Belgium.
The test consisted of mapping the conference area, and then walking (actually a stewardess did it) along a “surprise path” with check points to assess performances.
We will know the results shortly, but… everybody noticed that our indoor localization solution was the only one not requiring any installation of beacons or anything else, it just leveraged the smartphone sensors to run our hybrid inertial and geomagnetic algorithm to deliver localization. Also noticed was the incredible stability and smoothness of our localization, incomparable with other solutions. Although not very happy with the performances of our test (you know… Murphy’s law always apply here…) it was already a success as no other indoor technology can deliver these features, and nobody can do that offline and without any infrastructure.
Will keep you posted on the actual results!

About Geo IoT conference: During two days, Geo IoT World gathered over 170 participants and 60 speakers among the finest innovators and entrepreneurs in indoor/outdoor location, analytics and IoT. They all contributed to make the event a success in terms of contents, networking, technology and business collaborations opportunities.
About the TestBed: This first industrial evaluation of indoor location solutions measured many more metrics than indoor location competitions seen in the past, including real-time location accuracy, location accuracy after stabilization, time to stabilization, accuracy consistency, set-up time, numbers of beacons or locators deployed, and more.
