    Intelligent Service Integration (ISI) Laboratory of KAIST School of Computing(Prof. Han Dongsoo) has decided to carry out the international academic project for the development of Global Indoor Positioning System with Global H Company. Global H will support KAIST $ 400,000 for the project, which will be accompanied by technology transfer. The ISI Lab, which developed the KAIST Indoor Positioning System (KAILOS) in 2014 and released to the public, has recently developed a crowd sourcing AI technique that automatically labels the location of wireless signals acquired from unspecified number of smartphone users. In this joint international project, KAIST will upgrade location labeling AI technique using crowdsourcing to commercialization level. If the project is successfully performed, H Company is expected to install the system developed by KAIST its products and commercialize it. Professor Han Dongsoo, who will lead the international industry project with H company to be conducted over the next year, said, "It is a pity that the technology developed by KAIST will be commercialized through overseas companies before the domestic companies. The result is that domestic regulations on location services are too strict. " Professor Han Dongsoo said, "It is significant that a global company recognized the technology developed by KAIST and commissioned an industrial project for commercialization. Technology continues to decline and disappear if not developed. We will continue to expand international industry-academia cooperation in the field of indoor location recognition in the future. "

  • Establishment of smart science museum exhibition r..

    Establishment of smart science museum exhibition research group to improve exhibitions of the 4th industrial revolution era (Development of exhibition service technology that combines indoor location recognition technology with AR / VR, IoT, AI technology) The exhibition guidance for the science museum is expected to be renewed. KAIST (President, Shin Sung-chul) and the National Science Museum (President, Bae Tae-min) will showcase the smart science museum exhibition group that develops a system that guides the exhibition hall of science museum by linking indoor technology and key technologies of the fourth industrial revolution such as AR / VR and IoT Was launched. The research institute has nine universities including KAIST(School of Computing : Han Dong-su, Park Jin-a, Department of Industrial Design : Lee Ki-hyuk), Yonsei University, HanYang University and six research institutes including Electronic Component Research Institute and National Center for Science and Technology., A total of 15 tasks will be undertaken. From the second half of 2018 to 2022, about 13 billion won of government budget will be spent for four years. There have been many difficulties due to the lack of qualified and professional exhibition guides. The efficiency of exhibition guidance using smart phones was also slow. When the indoor location-based exhibition guidance system that the research team is aiming at is launched, visitors can receive exhibition information service through various methods including AR / VR technique depending on the location. Specifically, a service similar to the explanation of the exhibition guide will be provided through a smart phone. They will also apply living-wrapping techniques, which will be used to improve the exhibition, by conveying various feedbacks from spectators to the science museum immediately. The indoor location will utilize the KAIST Indoor Locating System (KAILOS), an indoor location recognition system developed by KAIST for a long time. Bae Jeong-Hoe of the National Science Museum said "Every year hundreds of thousands of young people visit the science museum. We should show them various examples of science contributing to the development of our society through exhibitions and instill dreams and inspiration through science. That is reason why the exhibition of science museum should be changed and developed in accordance with the 4th industrial revolution era. The exhibition should be changed in conjunction with the core technology of the 4th industrial revolution and the exhibition guidance should be made using the latest IT technology.”. Professor Han Dongsoo, the chair of the research group, said, "We will systematically organize the science museum display technology and exhibition contents into a smart science museum display platform, which will make the exhibition information system more flexible and easier to expand. AR/VR technology and indoor location recognition technology will be used in the exhibition guide.” The exhibition guidance system developed by the research team will be applied first to the National Science Museum and gradually expanded to 167 science museums across the country. It will be applied to museums and art museums in each district that show exhibits like a science museum. [그림] 주요 서비스
