English abstract:
In the research projects NAVIO (Pedestrian Navigation Systems in Combined Indoor/Outdoor Environements) and UCPNAVI (Ubiquitous Cartography for Pedestrian Navigation) conducted at the Vienna University of Technology we are working on the development of modern intelligent navigation systems and services for pedestrian navigation and guidance. For continuous position determination in combined indoor and outdoor environments a multi-sensor system is employed. Main research efforts have been concentrated on the challenging task of indoor positioning and navigation in recent years. First of all the use of WiFi (Wireless Fidelity or Wireless Local Area Networks) was investigated as access points are already available in an office building of the Vienna University of Technology where our department is located. On the other hand, for ubiquitous positioning currently the use of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is investigated and tested. Our research results in the last year in this field will be presented and discussed. In a cooperation with RMIT also the use of Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) together with RFID is investigated and first test have been conducted during my stay.
