Using the geomagnetic field of buildings to navigate indoors

 LISTEN HERE OR WHEREVER YOU GET YOUR PODCASTS

 Every building has its own geomagnetic fingerprint and by mapping that fingerprint against a floorplan of the building IndoorAtlas is able to provide accurate location and navigation inside. The genius of this system is that it takes advantage of an existing geomagnetic infrastructure.  

In this interview you will learn 

  • How the geomagnetic fields of buildings can play a key role in indoor location
  • How differences between iOS and android dramatically affect indoor navigation
  • What are challenges of indoor navigation compared to outdoor navigation and how they are being solved.
  • What the future of indoor navigation looks like and how indoor navigation might be monetised going forward

Figuring out the viewpoint of the camera is a big part of augmenting reality. The camera has six degrees of freedom.The first three are straightforward — xyz coordinates. Or latitude, longitude, and elevation. Those give you a point in space.For a camera we also need to define the Euler angles — the yaw, the pitch, and the roll — especially if we care about what the camera is pointed at.This is the full six degrees of freedom state, also referred to as the pose.

SBAS stands for Satellite-Based Augmentation System to standard GPS or GNSS signals. It’s a service that improves the quality of positioning from GPS — from multiple meters down to sub-meter level.SBAS uses similar technologies to other high-precision correction services people might be familiar with. It leverages an entire network of continuously operating reference stations around the ground area.
