Abstract

In this project, we aim to develop a high-precision indoor localization technology, with high sampling rate. The system will be designed to operate with very high reliability, even in adverse conditions, such as obstacles near the tracked objects. The specifications proposed in this project are challenging, when compared to the best systems found in technical and scientific literature. This project was conceived based on a market demand from KartFly, a growing company that operates the first electric go-kart track in Latin America. This technology will be applied as the basis of a digital game that operates simultaneously with the electric go-kart races. (AU)
