An Asset Location System for Hospitals
Project Description

This project will optimize ways to automatically locate portable medical devices in a hospital ward. Ratio Frequency (RF) indoor location technology is mature, but the presence of strong RF energy can be undesirable. The objective of this project is to explore a hybrid method to achieve accurate location data with minimal RF energy dissipation to the surrounding.
