The objective of IPIN (Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation Conference) is to measure the performance of indoor localisation systems designed for offices, hospitals or large public buildings. The 2016 edition  was held in Madrid from 4-7 Ocotober and attracted 25 teams. Participants tested their localisation solutions, exploiting the complex and multi-floor structure of the  University of Alcalà de Henares.

The competition ended with the awarding of four 1500$ prizes, awarded by the official sponsors of the competition KICS, ETRI, TECNALIA, and ASTI, respectively:

  • smartphone-based - Frank Ebner, University of Applied Sciences, Würzburg-Schweinfurt, Germany
  • pedestrial dead reckoning - Hojin Ju, University of Seul, Korea
  • offline smartphone-based - Stefan Knauth, University of Applied Sciences, Stuttgart, Germany)
  • mobile robot - Janis Tiemann, Technical University of Dortmund, Germany.

Researchers from the WNLab, ISTI-CNR, Pisa (Francesco Potortì, Paolo Barsocchi, Michele Girolami and Antonino Crivello) were among the main organisers.
