A new event highlighting indoor location is being held this year at the ION GNSS+ Conference, which takes place September 9-12 in Tampa, Florida. The two-part event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 10.

The indoor location sessions are part of a new Commercial Track that also covers high-accuracy products, multi-constellation products, new consumer products such as wearables, MEMS, and simulation and testing.

Greg Turetzky, Intel Mobile Communications, is the session chair for a panel discussion from 1:45 to 3:25 p.m. in Room 24 titled “Indoor Location, Standards and Implementations.”

The discussion will cover issues of standardization and certification from key organizations involved in indoor location, according to the ION GNSS+ program. Discussion will focus on the progress and issues for bringing indoor location to a level of standardization to allow penetration into all mobile devices.

Panel members include:

  • 3GPP: Kirk Burroughs, Qualcomm
  • WiFi Alliance/IEEE: Marc Linsner, Cisco
  • Bluetooth Sig/OMA: Ian Blair, Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd., UK
  • FCC/CSRIC: Chris Gates, Nextnav
  • Multiple: Steve Malkos, Broadcom
  • OGC: Hongwei Liu, MappedIn, Canada
  • MEMS Industry Group: Mahesh Chowdhary, ST Microelectronics
  • In-Location Alliance (ILA): Jounni Kamarainen, Nokia, Finland

Paul McBurney, GopherHush Corp., is guiding live indoor location demonstrations from 3:55 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 13-16. Demo areas will be set up around the edge of the conference room, and each presenter will have their demo running. In turn, each will talk about their demo from the stage. At the same time, there will be live video of the demo feeding to the big screen on stage. After the demos, panelists will be seated on stage to answer questions posed by the chair, and audience question moderated by the chair.

Demonstration partipants include:

  • RxNetworks, Ryan Reilly, “Resolving Indoor Location on Three Axes Using A-GNSS/Wi-Fi/ and Barometric Pressure”
  • Broadcom, Steve Malkos, “Enhanced Wi-Fi Ranging with Round Trip Time Measurements”
  • CSR, Dave Huntingford, “Indoor Positioning with MEMS, GNSS, Wi-Fi, Signals of Opportunity and Cloud-Based Learning”
  • PNI Sensor, Becky Oh, “Pedestrian Dead Reckoning (PDR) Using MEMS Inertial Sensors and PNI Sensor’s Ultra Low-Power SENtral Sensor Hub”
  •, Markus Krainz, “Indoor Location Demonstration”
  • Navizon, Inc., Cyril Houri, “Navizon Indoors: A Pedestrian Navigation System Combining the Analysis of Wireless Signals (Wi-Fi, iBeacons) and Inertial Navigation”
  • Nokia, Jani Ollikainen and Hannu Laine, “Indoor and Local Positioning with BT Low Energy and Easy Installation”
