  1. # Owl Positioning System
  2. **OwlPS** (_Owl Positioning System_) is a positioning (localization) system
  3. based on the IEEE 802.11 radio network (Wi-Fi), targeting mainly indoor
  4. environments. It uses an infrastructure-centred architecture, which means the
  5. infrastructure does the measurements and computes the mobile terminals'
  6. positions, rather than the terminals computing their own positions (as it is
  7. the case for instance with the GPS).
  8. OwlPS implements various positioning techniques and algorithms based on the
  9. radio signal strength. It features a self-calibration (or autocalibration)
  10. mechanism that avoids the time-consuming manual fingerprinting phase and allows
  11. considering dynamic changes of the environment (human, climatic, etc.) when
  12. computing the location of mobile terminals.
  13. **This presentation is an excerpt of `doc/owlps.t2t`. Please refer to this file
  14. for a more in-depth introduction to OwlPS.**
  15. ## News
  16. OwlPS is not currently actively maintained, as I'm not working on indoor
  17. positioning at the moment, but I'll happily consider any contribution (or
  18. job offer).
  19. The `CHANGELOG` file lists the changes that occurred in OwlPS, version by
  20. version, since its early stages.
  21. ## Contribute
  22. If you would like to contribute to OwlPS, you can:
  23. * use it, test it, and report suggestions and bugs on the forge:
  24. <https://code.lm7.fr/mcy/owlps/issues/>
  25. * get the latest development code, add functionalities and send me pull
  26. requests by email or on the forge: <https://code.lm7.fr/mcy/owlps/pulls>
  27. If you're looking for ideas, the `TODO.t2t` file could be a good start.
  28. ## Installation
  29. For a guide to installing OwlPS, please consult `INSTALL.t2t`.
  30. ## License
  31. OwlPS is free software, released under the terms of the CeCILL license (GNU
  32. GPL-compatible). For more detail, please consult `COPYRIGHT.t2t`.
  33. ## Note on the t2t file extension
  34. Most of the documentation in this repository is provided as text files in the
  35. **txt2tags** format (`*.t2t` files). You can convert them to various formats
  36. (HTML, man pages, etc.) using the [txt2tags](http://txt2tags.org/) utility; if
  37. you mind the markup tags, you can even strip them using the `txt` output.
