GDP-based Standardized Localization Service

This is a prototype GDP-based implementation of the Standardized Localization Service. More details about the design, architecture and standardized interfaces can be found in the following publications:

Short description

Standardized Localization Service is a modular localization service architecture that consists of location-based applications, an integrated location service enabling handover, fusion and integration of location information provisioning services, and resources for generating location information. A unified style of interaction among these components is enabled by a set of well-defined Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Installation procedure

You will need the Global Data Plane (GDP), which can be downloaded from:

There is also a set of dependencies you will have to satisfy:

  • scipy
  • numpy
  • threading
  • Queue
  • daemon
  • json
  • subprocess
  • gdp

Obviously, you will need the source code of the Standardized Localization Service:

git clone
cd standardized_location_service

Distributed messaging between the components of this prototype implementation is implemented with a set of GDP logs following the principle - one interaction primitive, one GDP-log.

In order to introduce a location-based application to the system, you will have to generate a set of application-specific GDP logs, namely Request location and Report location logs (at this point, more logs coming). This can be done with the following command, application_id being a unique ID of the application.

sh application_id

Similarly, for introducing a provisioning service a set of GDP-logs has to be created. The following logs are needed Service discovery, Service offering, Request location, Report location. This can be done with the following command, provisioning_service_id being a unique ID of the provisioning service.

sh provisioning_service_id

Additionally, you will have to register the service with the core of the Standardized Localization Service, namely the Integrated Location Service, which can be done with the following command:

sh provisioning_service_id

Initial benchmarks

Currently the Standardized Localization Service uses a set of 8 provisioning services based on WiFi fingerprinting. The Standardized Localization Service is operating on the 2nd floor of the TKN building in Berlin. The benchmarks are available here:
