How does Indoor Positioning work?

People often wonder how positioning works and why the technologies are different indoors and outdoors. The variety of indoor positioning technologies and their different capabilities also make it hard to define what is best according to one's needs. In his latest article, our CEO Mederic Morel sheds light on this complex matter.
 
"Before addressing the issue of interior positioning, it is important to understand how outdoor positioning works. Basically, there are two ways to figure out one’s position. The first way is to compute a precise position at a given time; it’s called Absolute Positioning. Since Earth is a spherical object, the information is made of spherical coordinates composed of two angles called latitude and longitude and a distance called altitude."
