Dear Francisco,

For the localization Track competition,
Akram Salem, a 3rd year PhD student is arrived today at Madrid.
He is accompagnied with his wife and his child which is 6 month old.
For this reason, Akram has prefered not participating to competitors 
Akram is technically brillant. I hope veerything will be fair for his 
first participation to EvAAL competition.

Now i detail the description of the team :

Team name =

. HMPS stands for Hierarchical Multi-Positioning System. The HMPS 
version proposed to EvAAL'13 competition  is a system which is Marker 
Analysis based.
Our Team has competed to EvAAL since 2011. At EvAAL'11 we have competed 
with OwlPS version 0.8, a Wi-Fi based positioning system. We arrived at 
the fourth place. Last year, at EvAAL'12, we have competed with OwlPS 
version 1.3. We arrived at the 3rd place. The main upgrade was to 
experiment an autocalibration module to avoid a time costy offline 
fingerprinting phase.
This year we are experimenting an extended system coupling outdoor 
positioning service coupled with OwLPS indoor and near outdoor 
localization service and an artificial and natural marker analysis 
camera-based positioning service. HMPS implements Hierarchical 
Multi-Positioning Algorithm. This algorithm is a context aware one which 
propose 20 meters of accuracy outdoor to submetric accuracy when a 
marker motif is recognized.
