WiTrack could be used for new kinds of gaming or to trigger help for the elderly when they fall. It is an update to earlier work released by MIT in June.
Jed Fisher's insight:

Happy New Year catchup - Impressive research, again great for AEC/BIM/GIS/FM.

Let's hope 2013 will be the year for Indoor location reporting!

In the race to bring indoor location technology to market, an eight-person startup is taking on big name players Google, Qualcomm and Samsung, and has the potential to win.
Jed Fisher's insight:

CSR’s Sirf Technologies division and WifiSLAM claim to have figured out how to map indoor locations when you’re walking with your mobile phone inside a building. I really hope that we get to see this work in practice (with good precision) in 2013. 

Having the ability to get to less than a meter precision inside a building is a very powerful technology breakthrough that would enable many more workflows and usecases. Currently GPS/Wifi is not precice enough for many workflows (only getting to around 3 meters at best).
