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:
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).
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:
Obviously, you will need the source code of the Standardized Localization Service:
git clone https://github.com/terraswarm/standardized_localization_service.git 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 generate_application_logs.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 generate_provisioning_logs.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 register_provisioning_service.ch provisioning_service_id
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:
