Localization & Tracking

Our research activities in the area of "Localization & Tracking" include

  • Acoustic speaker and sound event localization
  • Sensor array geometry estimation
  • Indoor navigation with WiFi-Signals
  • Bluetooth-Low-Energy based localization and tracking

In the following a short overview about our recent activities in the different research topics is given.

Bluetooth Low Energy Localization

Smartphones have become for many users a device which accompies them during the whole day. A consequence of this trend is the ubiquitous availability of Bluetooth and (with Standard 4.1) Bluetooth low energy. Bluetooth low energy devices are known for their inexpensive and energy preserving design (battery powered). Thus they are well-prepared for localization purposes.
