Test results on indoor positioning technologies


Very interesting results from the Microsoft indoor localization competition. Basically my two favorite companies in this space -- Decawave with ultrawideband ["UWB"] tech and Marvelmind with ultrasonic ["sound]") going head to head. In my experience, they're both sub-cm accurate, which is great. I've found ultrasonic to have slightly better range, but they're both getting better fast.

  • Really terrible webpage with virtually no information about the results or the technologies involved.  I'm very interested but none the wiser.

  • @Hein Y axis is in meters (0.27 cm for the winning team).

  • 100KM
    Great comparison - I take it Y is CM?
  • Thanks for the info Chris! Given the complexity of the test area the 0.27 cm mean error of the best team is very impressive!
