Colloquium - Patterson

A Mobile Sensor Platform for Indoor Location-Aware Services and Navigation
Ryan Patterson
Department of Computer Science

Indoor location-aware and navigational services require signal transmitters and sensors to support the computation of indoor locations from known fixed points. I will demonstrate a prototype ultrasonic transmitter and receiver system that is designed to emit, filter, and amplify weakly detected signals resulting in signal propagation over greater ranges than could normally be achieved using handheld power sources.

This demonstration will be grounded in a discussion about how the prototype technology will be used in a handheld PDA and integrated with the MANTIS sensor network project to support indoor navigation and location services.
