A survey on location systems for ubiquitous computing
MetadataShow full item record
Emerging ubiquitous computing applications must know where things are physically located. To meet this must, many different location systems and technologies have been developed. In this thesis, we discuss the basic techniques used for location detection, describe taxonomy of location system features, present a survey on research and commercial location systems, and finally, compare these location systems using the identified features. It is our hope that this paper is a useful reference for a newcomer to the area of location detection for understanding and evaluating the many options in this domain.
