Indoor Localization Competition

Accurate indoor localization has the potential to transform the way people navigate indoors in a similar way that GPS transformed the way people navigate outdoors. Over the last 15 years, several indoor localization technologies have been proposed and experimented by both academia and industry, but we have yet to see large scale deployments.

Microsoft Indoor Localization Competition as part of IPSN 2016 aims to bring together real-time or near real-time indoor location technologies and compare their performance in the same space.

A poster session dedicated to all competition participants will be organized during the conference. Participants will have the opportunity to explain their system to conference attendees.

More information regarding participation, eligibility and evaluation is available here.
