Organization and Test Procedures for indoor localization and tracking 


A few notes about the organization of the competition:

  • The organizers give an appointment to each competitor so that each competitor may stay at the living lab for the time necessary for the evaluation of his/her system.
  • Only one competitor at a time is admitted in the living lab (no other competitors will be admitted during the evaluation of the other competitors). The reason is that we will use the same paths for the tracking tests of all competitors, and such paths cannot be disclosed before the actual test because this might invalidate the results.
  • The path to be tracked will not be disclosed to anybody before entering the living lab for the competition
  • The areas of interest are described in the Living Lab and Technical Infrastructure document.
  • We will give the opportunity to each competitor to repeat the test one time and to opt for the best result between the first try and the second.
  • The organizers will not provide any tools for bricolage, hence competitors should bring all the tools they need. If necessary, there are several malls near the living lab where the competitors may buy some tools. In any case, if competitors need to hang devices on the walls and they plan to use glue, nails or any other method that may damage the living lab they are requested to contact the organizers as soon as possible.

Installation of localization systems at the living lab:

  •  Each competitor will be given up to 3 hours to: install the system, execute the tests, uninstall everything. Specifically, we plan to give at most 1 hour for the installation. If any competitor feels that he/she cannot meet this requirement, he/she is invited to communicate this as soon as possible to the organizers.
  • After the installation the organizers will make a preliminary test to ensure that the connection between the competing system and the evaluation tools is correctly established. The time required to solve any issue related to this does NOT count for the Installation Complexity criteria.
  • The porch will be part of the localization area of the LivingLab, this means that it will be possible that the pre-defined paths followed by the actor could be also on the porch. The porch is covered with a ceiling and it is possible to install sensors there.

In all the tests the competing systems will localize the movements of an actor (a person of the organization trained in moving along pre-defined paths).
