The package is currently in development phase.

Package Summary


Indoor positioning is the basic need of technologies required for Industry 4.0. Some examples of these technologies are autonomy of unmanned mobile robots, personnel and asset tracking, personnel navigation and location-based services. With the realization of technologies, applications like autonomous mobile robots, monitoring efficiency (OEE, KPI, reliability) of equipments, dynamic routing for mobile robots, real time stock tracking, location-based emergency detection can be developed in order to increase the productivity.

The objective of this project is to develop an open source generic ROS package for absolute indoor positioning. In order to make the ROS package sensor independent, a specific message type called sensor_msgs/AnchorScan that includes the coordinates and TDOA measurements of the anchors from which signal received will be defined. At the end of the project, an open source generic ROS package and necessary indoor algorithms will be developed for indoor positioning system developers and users. This ROS package will be compatible with other ROS stacks and packages like robot_localization, move_base, navigation etc. In addition, in this ROS package, a ROS node will be developed for the calculation of KPI parameters.

Software quality assurance will be considered. Maintenance for the package will be supported by Inovasyon Muhendislik Ltd.
