**OwlPS** (_Owl Positioning System_) is a positioning (localization) system
based on the IEEE 802.11 radio network (Wi-Fi), targeting mainly indoor
environments. It uses an infrastructure-centred architecture, which means the
infrastructure does the measurements and computes the mobile terminals'
positions, rather than the terminals computing their own positions (as it is
the case for instance with the GPS).
environments. It uses an infrastructure-centred architecture, which means
deployed hardware takes care of the measurements and computes the mobile
terminals' positions, rather than the terminals computing their own positions
(as it is the case for instance with the GPS).

OwlPS implements various positioning techniques and algorithms based on the
radio signal strength. It features a self-calibration (or autocalibration)
mechanism that avoids the time-consuming manual fingerprinting phase and allows
considering dynamic changes of the environment (human, climatic, etc.) when
computing the location of mobile terminals.

OwlPS is not currently actively maintained, as I'm not working on indoor
positioning at the moment, but I'll happily consider any contribution (or
job offer).
