When the press release says ...future OGC initiatives will address the real-time, event-driven aspects of indoor mapping and navigation for first responders..., what does this mean? What are the event-driven aspects?
Answer: The focus of this initiative is on automating the process to generate indoor 3D maps and navigation networks as part of pre-incident planning. This data could be considered a static reference. However, future initiatives could potentially leverage this reference dataset in combination with dynamic information being collected from real-time localization systems, which may include LiDAR and other sensors, and other sources, e.g. IoT sensors, to deliver real-time navigation services for first responders during actual incidents. updated: 2018-07-10 09:31:07
