Research Outline

Wearable Outdoor Geolocation


To find out wearable outdoor technologies with their pros and cons.

Early Findings

Geo IoT

  • Geo IoT is a geolocation technology that not only allows locating the subject but also retrieve additional information, e.g. queries, trigger events, and assigning user rights.
  • Geo IoT, when compared to classical asset tracking, offers additional benefits while classical asset tracking only offers positioning.


Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)


  • WiFi leverages WLANs (Wireless Local Area Networks), i.e. device networks that operate over radio waves.
  • WiFi positioning is accurate but may require paid service.
