NIST has had extensive research activities in the area of indoor localization and tracking. We are interested in any method for solving this challenging problem, whether through use of RF-based techniques, inertial navigation, or other means such as ultrasound, altimeters. We are interested in not only improving the location accuracy of localization methods, but also doing so in such a way that the resulting systems would not be too expensive or difficult to use. Other areas of interest include cooperative localization and hybrid localization methods.

Location information is expected to play an important role in smart devices and the Internet of things in the future. Thus, NIST is also interested in location-based services (LBS).
