From SGPS Project
By the moment our history is a bit short, but we hope that together we will make it much longer!
- October, 2012: SGPS Project presented at Linuxec in Universidad Pontificia Comillas. More info here.
- September, 2012: The system is presented at the Open Source Hardware Convention 2012 (OSHWCON2012). More info here.
- February, 2012: This wiki-site is created in order to make the SGPS project even bigger and share the knowledge. The paper is finally accepted. See the full text here.
- January, 2012: The first journal paper about SGPS is accepted in the Sensors journal (JCR impact factor: 1.771). Due to a reviewer comment, the name changed to SGPS.
- September, 2011: The system is presented at the Open Source Hardware Convention 2011 (OSHWCON2011), held in Madrid (in spanish, subtitling pending). Talk given by Javier V. Gómez (JotauVe). The video is available here
- July, 2011: The project get bigger and new ideas appear. Borja Fernández (TracKy) joined the project and everything goes faster.
- March, 2011: Frode Eika Sandnes visit Madrid and the UPM, university where Javier V. Gómez (JotauVe) studies. There, they had two meetings and they decided to keep working on th project, since the results obtained so far were not satisfactory at all. We call the project LIBOL System: Light Intensity Based Outdoor Localization System.
- December, 2010: The project report of the work started in september is released. You can download it here.
- October, 2010: A paper with the base system ideas is published. Download it here.
- September, 2010: Javier V. Gómez (JotauVe), with other three cool guys, started to work in a Frode Eika Sandnes' idea about a system which is able to find out its earth position using light intensity data. This was thanks to an Erasmus scholarship in Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences. In that period, we received a very useful help from Frode Eika, Nihad Kapetanovic and Peyman Mirtaheri.
