Indoor GPS Technology Gaining Momentum for Measurement

Published: Sunday, August 29, 2004 - 22:00

A new partnership between Romer CimCore and Arc Second Inc. highlights the rapidly growing acceptance of indoor global positioning systems as the measurement technology of the future.

Taking coordinate measurement beyond traditional approaches, Romer CimCore, Metrologic Inc and New River Kinematics recently unveiled the new products and software at the 2004 Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference. The new products use Arc Second Inc.’s new Indoor GPS technology.

By providing a factorywide coordinate frame, the technology allows free movement to providers of robotic systems, measurement instruments, material handling equipment and other devices. With Indoor GPS, awkward and unwieldy approaches to leapfrogging are becoming things of the past.

“We are excited to see the momentum of Indoor GPS growing within the metrology customer base,” says Edward Barrientos, Arc Second Inc. president. “The growing interest of other metrology solution providers in incorporating Indoor GPS is also extremely exciting.”
