Navigating the Data Frontier: Scaling Indoor Positioning Solutions from Research to Big Data

Dr. Firas Alsehly, Director of Positioning & Navigation Lab I Huawei Edinburgh Research Centre


Abstract: Ensuring ubiquitous availability of location-based services (LBS) across consumer devices, including wearables and smartphones, is of paramount importance. However, achieving high availability and seamless positioning—both indoors and outdoors—poses significant challenges due to scale, complexities, and reliance on infrastructure. Join us as we explore the intersection of data-driven approaches and resilient LBS solutions, opening up new possibilities for location-aware applications.

Would recent data modelling techniques, help us to achieve robust and seamless positioning? Let us delve into recent advancements that leverage multi-modality and graph representation to enhance LBS availability.
