Mobile-Mapping Wireless-Enabled GPS Indoor Geolocation System
Ilir F. Progri, Giftet Inc.
A mobile-mapping wireless-enabled GPS indoor geolocation system is made of three main sub-systems: (a) mobile-mapping, (b) wireless-enabled, and (c) GPS. Any combination of these three subsystems can produce up to seven types of indoor geolocation systems: (a) mobile-mapping, (b) wireless-enabled, (c) GPS, (d) mobile-mapping wireless-enabled, (e) mobile-mapping GPS, and (f) wireless-enabled GPS, and (g) mobile-mapping Wireless-enabled GPS.
In our previous publications we have already discussed one of them: wireless-enabled GPS indoor geolocation system which provides sub-meter position level accuracy 99.999% of the time and meets the integrity requirements in the tough areas such as indoors, undergrounds, and in tunnels but lacks the needed infrastructure of mapping in indoor and/or urban environments.
In this paper we discuss the remaining five other subsystems and the system as a whole and provide several case studies that demonstrate the capability of a mobile-mapping wireless-enabled GPS indoor geolocation system in: (a) reducing dispatching time, (b) improving of the quality and safety of service, and (c) offering tremendous benefits to GPS user segment.
