A Calgary startup called Takemetuit is working on a solution by developing a navigation system that works indoors, with help from the Living Labs program run by the City of Calgary.

The indoor positioning system (IPS) is a system used to locate objects or people inside a building using

  • lights
  • radio waves
  • magnetic fields
  • acoustic signals
  • other sensory information
