Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) can take advantage of versatility, completeness, and low prices of standard wireless protocols; Bluetooth as we show later is a candidate suitable for WSNs. The fusion of data collected over a WSN is just an evident application of time synchronization. Bringing together these two issues, we find that synchronization using(More)
Installing indoor location system prototypes yields practical lessons about how to design and deploy future ubiquitous technologies. The design of context-aware technologies has been on many research team agendas since Mark Weiser first described his ubiquitous computing vision. Determining the location of people and objects in indoor environments with a(More)
Many techniques have been developed to perform indoor location. Each strategy has its own advantages and drawbacks, with the application demanding location information the main determinant of the system to be used. In this paper, a system is presented that serves location to innovative services for elderly and disabled people, ranging from alarm and(More)
The MonAMI project aims to investigate the feasibility of the deployment of open platforms for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) services provision based on Ambient Intelligence (AmI) and to test user acceptance and the usability of the services. Services were designed to provide support in the areas of environmental control, security, well-being and leisure.(More)
In the following we discuss how a high precision, in-door positioning system (UNIZAR positioning system) can be part of a general positioning system to fit into different application areas depending on different needs and requirements for precision. Specific focus is put on applications for learning and training contexts. We argue that many innovative user(More)
