Indoor positioning in the urban city environment
Indoor positioning means that one can move from one place to another within a city area by paying a visit to the services offered along the way, for example from a parking garage or inside a railway station to one’s seat in a concert hall. The indoor positioning can help to find various services and in the future, it may for example enable the automatic parking of vehicles.
Digital indoor maps can be used to navigate easily within the urban environment in places with large streams of people, such as parking garages, shopping centers, sport venues, or railway stations. Tampere is seeking new business and innovative consumer products by seamlessly combining outdoor and indoor positioning.
