ORPS (Omni Radio based Positioning System) is a indoor radio based positioning system, which exploits radio signal strength measurements in WLAN/Bluetooth ad-hoc or access-point based wireless networks, in order to track, locate and inform mobile users. Apart from its ability to track passive devices, it is possible to deploy the system in a spontaneous ad-hoc manner. With the help of cheap, active UHF RFIDs, the overall accuracy of ORPS becomes an adjustable parameter.
