Mobile World Congress 2018 Exhibits the Latest Trends in Indoor Localization

Another trend is network-based localization, moving the effort of computing location positions off the device and into the network. Device-based localization has the advantage of scalability, with little increase in server or network requirements as the number of devices rise, but requires significant CPU and battery from the devices being localized. But if a network of locators or beacons can localize devices in their vicinity, not only is device CPU and battery not needed, but devices do not need to run an app in order to be localized. If you want to see network-based localization in action, your first stops should be Quuppa and PoLTE.

Of course, these are only a few out of at least 33 companies exhibiting or discussing indoor localization technologies at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The others include great companies, each with their own advantages: some have easy installation and setup, some have the most mature solutions, many have specific niche markets in which they excel. The Grizzly Analytics Guide to Indoor Location Technologies at MWC gives you a map of where these companies are exhibiting, along with a brief categorization and profile of each. If you are interested in recent advances and trends in location technologies, MWC is the location to be.
