Indoor location enables an accurate positioning of smartphones inside buildings.
While knowing the indoor location of people would change the way we interact with our smartphones forever, this is a challenging problem, since GPS is unavailable inside buildings.
Understanding that a working solution would be very rewarding, many competitive companies have tried to address this challenge. Nevertheless, indoor location remains a global challenge.
