Development of Location-Based Indoor Facilities Management System

Julian Kang, Kampanart Tejavanija

Many facilities management systems depend on location information for identifying facilities of interest. However, obtaining location information in a large open space is not sometimes easy due to lack of landmarks. Although Global Positioning System (GPS) is well known for its ability to provide accurate positioning when used outdoor, it was seldom intended for indoor environment because the satellite signal tends to be week or deflected inside the building. Several indoor location identification systems therefore have been developed. This paper presents how a prototype location-based indoor facilities management system was developed and tested using the indoor location system.
