2012 Precision Indoor Personnel Location & Tracking Annual International Technology Workshop
August 6-7, 2012
Sponsored by Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate
WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute), Worcester, Massachusetts
This Workshop provides a forum for researchers and developers working in the important area of indoor location and tracking to share technical knowledge and to define the state of the art. The focus of this workshop is on any-time, anywhere tracking of critical personnel (such as emergency responders), with extension to the breadth of commercial uses that will arise from the maturation of this technology. Further, the focus is on systems that provide complete tracking and position information on all equipped personnel. This year's workshop will also include consideration of the applicability of commercial location-aware systems to the needs of the first responder community. The important topic of standards development for location and tracking systems will also be addressed, as will integration with other sensor technologies that benefit from location awareness.
