Video demo
- Demo: Precise Indoor "GPS" - tracking a mobile beacon in a small room in real time

- Demo: Two mobile beacons ("hedghogs") simultaniously - v02 - Walking in the room with 4 stationary beacons on the walls and two mobile beacons in the hands. 3-5 meters between the beacons

- Demo: Two mobile beacons ("hedghogs") in hands - v01 - Walking in the room with 4 stationary beacons on the walls and two mobile beacons in hands.

- Demo: walking with mobile beacon - v02 - Walking in the room with stationary 4 beacons on the walls and mobile beacon in the hand. Distances between beacons - 3-5 meters.

- Demo: Walking with mobile beacon - v01 - Walking in the room with stationary 4 beacons on the walls and mobile beacon in the hand. Distances between beacons - 3-5 meters.

- Indoor "GPS" - medium scale demo - Moving beacon is traced by 11 stationary beacons forming an indoor navigation system ("indoor GPS") - "shopping mall variant". Stationary beacons are arranged in clusters that are semi-automatically assembled by the system in a single map.

- Indoor "GPS" - short demo - Moving beacon is traced by 4 stationary beacons forming a navigation system ("indoor GPS") - single room variant




FAQ

Starting in

- Check that all jumpers are installed and in place and the device is charged.
- Check that correct SW versions are installed on the beacons, routers, hedgehog, dashboards. It is recommended to download the latest version from Download SW.
- One can check the SW version of any device by connecting to the dashboard via USB. If already connected via radio interface, the SW version is also visible, if the device is awake.

Charging

- Charging is done automatically when device is connected to USB.

Other help

- Notice a tiny side-looking reset button on the boards. Use it, if you are stuck.
- Any beacon being attached to the computer via USB and connected to dashboard, becomes a router. Pay attention that only one router shall be connected to the dashboard at any time.
- Beacons go asleep automatically, if not visible to modem/router for more than 1 min. They can be woken up.

Questions & answers

Question: What is the exact procedure for getting the beacons online? e.g. do they need to be plugged in or will they wake up as long as the batteries are sufficiently charged?
Answer: If router/modem is visible in the dashboard already (always address 0), wake up the needed beacon by double-clicking on the button with its number in the lower part of the dashboard. After a 2-8 seconds the device will wakeup. It is possible to wake up all available devices at once by CTRL+"wake up"

Question: When a beacon is plugged in via the USB port, does it recharge the battery?
Answer: Yes. Charging is fully automatic. It takes 1-2h to fully charge the beacon.

Question: What does the flashing red LED mean on the beacons? Some of the beacons are flashing the light and some aren't.
Answer: Flashing red (about 1 Hz) LED is OK - it means that the beacon works. If the beacon goes 2 sec continuous light after reset and then goes dark - its battery needs to be charged. If no flashing light at all - the beacon is in sleep mode.

Question: Does each beacon need to be able to see all other beacons, or just 3 or so?
Answer: No need to see all of them. Each beacon must see at least 3 other beacons when the map is forming to complete the formation. For the complex formations with several clusters of beacons, there is specially procedure for the network deployment.
