Company: Fizzible Tech
School: Mit , Pune
“Fizzible Tech’s research division is primarily focused on research and development of wireless technologies. The focus of research has been on how to extend the power of positioning technology into the Indoor environment. Currently with the prevalence of technology and smart phones, people have become accustomed to relying on navigational tools like GPS. Invention of GPS addressed the age-old question of where am I, and where am I going. It has changed the way how we do business, it has changed the way we travel or how we communicate. But what happens when we are inside a building and need more precision than is not possible with GPS. That’s where ‘Fizzible’s IPS ’ comes in. Usability of GPS is limited when we are indoors due to its accuracy limit of 10m. If we want to track anything in an indoor environment where we spend most of our time either working or shopping or eating or at the mall or at the office and the movement is limited and multi-floored, it’s not possible through sole use of GPS. To address this problem, multiple solutions have been developed and implemented in past few years such as WiFi fingerprinting, Beacons, Blue tooth, sensors, Cell Tower signal etc but none of them provide an accuracy of less than 1 meter. This gave us an opportunity to develop a solution which is first independent of manufacturer or make of any RF capable hardware, scalable, robust and provides an accuracy of almost 25 centimeters. The research division at Fizzible which is consulted by professors from IITs and IISc have developed a prototype of the said solution having achieved an accuracy of 25 cms in an indoor environment. Autonomous vehicles, Aviation, Geophysics, Warehouse automation, Inventory management, Crowd management at Large events, Better security management at high profile locations like Airports and finding misplaced objects at home, these are just some of numerous applications of this technology”
