Indoor location of users involves multiple sensing and communication technologies and an efficient software exploiting these and enabling the metric, with or without the aid of GPS (which becomes irrelevant when one is indoor with many obstructions for the signal). This involves sensing using GPS, cellular, WiFi, BlueTooth and IR, in that order of coarse to fine resolution. Broadcom recently announced a chip product that exploits all these technologies to locate any one within few feet of resolution. MP Divakar

Indoor location services are poised to explode. I just released a 163-page report covering research at over a dozen major mobile companies, several all the major chip makers, and over 30 start-ups. Lots of revolutionary stuff coming! http://www.grizzlyanalytics.com/report_2012_05_indoor.html

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
