Exploring Indoor Positioning Systems for Construction

Posted by Dan Dolinar on Fri, Mar 20, 2015 @ 07:03 AM

A sense of place and space is the main area of focus throughout the design and construction project phases. As you are well aware, there is a range of technologies allowing users to experience a space. For example, augmented reality technologies coupled with global position systems allow users to view physical, real world building environments with elements augmented by computer-generated sensory input (sound, video, graphics or global positioning (GPS) data. Virtual reality technologies allow users to interact with a project model prototype and test design prior to physical construction. However, once a building becomes enclosed as a result of physical construction, global position systems no longer works. In this post, we explore indoor positioning systems (IPS) as an option to pick up where GPS leaves off.
