Microlocation is the process of locating any entity with a very high accuracy (possibly in centimeters), whereas geofencing is the process of creating a virtual fence around a point of interest (PoI). In this paper, we present an insight into various microlocation enabling technologies, techniques, and services. We also discuss how they can accelerate the incorporation of Internet of Things (IoT) in smart buildings. We argue that micro-location-based location aware solutions can play a… Expand
