Wireless into the Future

By Tian Xie, Presales Technical Consultant, HP Networking 

 

tx.pngOne of the recent research achievements from HP Labs was presented at the recent University of Toronto Networking Symposium by Kyu-Han Kim, a senior researcher and mobility research manager at HP Labs.

 

Kyu-Han Kim proudly presented his advanced indoor localization solution system – CUPID. He emphasized the importance of indoor location and where CUPID can be used in the future. For example, there could be new context-aware applications that use CUPID for location based advertising, consumer behavior analysis, asset tracking, and security monitoring etc.

Current Indoor Location Technologies

 

After analyzing the limitations of the current indoor location technologies, Kyu-Han Kim demonstrated how CUPID utilizes natural human mobility combined with physical layer (PHY) information to overcome the effect of multipath reflections.

CUPID Localization Methodology

 

An impressive live demo proved that CUPID can improve the accuracy from 10m to 2m comparing to the existing WiFi based solutions.
