PDR Challenge in Warehouse Picking
It is necessary for us to share common measures as PDR related R&D is getting highly active worldwide. For instance, description of the performance should be unified in spec sheets and scientific papers. However, different measures from absolute positioning methods such as GNSS, Wi-Fi, and BLE are required for PDR because it is a method of relative positioning. PDR Benchmark Standardization Committee was established in 2014 as a platform of the grassroots activity for discussing those issues. This year, PDR Benchmark Standardization Committee has organized PDR Challenge in Warehouse Picking. The result will be announced in IPIN 2017.
