Indoor Localization for Navigational Aides

Internet-of-Things for Smart and Connected Cities is an important research topic in computer science and engineering. The interest in IoT is enhancing indoor navigation, particularly for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The goal of this project is to use SpotSense’s state-of-the-art indoor localization technology to transform ASU’s CUbiC Lab into an IoT testbed to enable rapid development, deployment, and evaluation of indoor mobility, wayfinding, and discovery applications, toward larger-scale Smart City research efforts. The first trial application is IoT Signage, that it would provide applicable information to users as they enter, navigate, and “discover” a new environment.
