A “How to” - gather data and test an OmniAccess Stellar LBS Campus network

  1. 1. 1 How to collect data and test OmniAccess Stellar LBS Campus?
  2. 2. 2 2 You are halfway to setting up OmniAccess Stellar LBS Campus Indoor Location solution. Venue modeling done. Data collection to do.
  3. 3. 3 3 The aim is to create a positioning database (PDB) from the collected sensory data of the whole venue. e.g : Wi-Fi or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) power levels
  4. 4. 4 4 For positioning on Android, existing Wi-Fi infrastructure can be used For positioning on iOS, our BLE beacons are required Our BLE beacons can also be used if your Wi-Fi network is not dense enough. BLE-based positioning only works on Android 4.3+
  5. 5. 5 5 Once your Wi-Fi and/or BLE infrastructure is ready. You can go collect measurements in the building.
  6. 6. 6 6 To collect measurements, you’ll walk everywhere in the building twice (forth, back, forth, back) with our setup mobile app running on your smartphone
  7. 7. 7 7 The app displays the floor plans. While walking, every once in a while, place a waypoint at your current location on the floor plans. The system will associate the sensory data collected along the way with your locations and will generate a Positioning Database.
  8. 8. 8 8 A: When you… Q: So when exactly do I have to place a waypoint at my current location on the floor plans? stop walking change direction are at a path Intersection
  9. 9. 9 9 A: While still walking… Q: And How? 2. Press the marker button 1. Drag to put the green dot on your current position Here, I have walked all the dark green paths left the blue part to cover.
  10. 10. 10 10 Our setup mobile app is called OmniAccess Stellar LBS installer, available on Google Play and Apple App Store The one on Google Play can be used for both Wi-Fi and BLE deployment. The one on Apple App Store only is used for BLE deployment. Stellar LBS Installer
  11. 11. 11 11 1. Authenticate yourself 2. Select your venue 3. Let it download itself0. Install then launch OmniAccess Stellar LBS Installer Then we arrive at the main screen… Stellar LBS Installer
  12. 12. 12 12 Number of BLE or Wi-Fi beacons detected Start or stop collecting data Downstairs maps Level number Synchronize data with server For data collection For positioning testing Path left to walk Path already walked
  13. 13. 13 13 Now press Start
  14. 14. 14 14 The Start button changed to Stop The Marker button appeared The green dot should be your current location when you press the Marker button
  15. 15. 15 15 Now, imagine right now your are at A and you want to collect data from A to B
  16. 16. 16 16 2 markers now 1. Press Marker button to tell you are at A 2. Start walking toward B 3. While walking, drag the maps so that the green dot glides to B 4. When you arrive at B, press Marker a second time and continue walking toward another point Note: no need to stop when pressing Marker button A B
  17. 17. 17 17 The blue path is walked one way (A to B) If you now collect data from B to A, the blue path will be entirely covered in green A B
  18. 18. 18 18 Continue collecting data until all blue paths turn green. Then press the Stop button to save the data Note: You can use Stop / restart whenever you want to take a break.
  19. 19. 19 19 Do not forgot to collect data on floor transitions (stairs, escalators, elevators, etc) A B 1. Press Marker at A 2. Take the stairs or escalators 3. Press Downstairs button 4. Press Marker at B
  20. 20. 20 20 Once all the walkable paths are green, press Synchronize to send collected data to the server.
  21. 21. 21 21 Switch to the Demo Mode in the application, let the system download the Positioning Database. You are now located by the app the blue dot shows your location
