Abstract

See full text

Enhanced navigation and positional metadata are provided based upon position determination utilizing data provided by multiple different systems of sensors. Infrastructure, or fixed sensor, data provides an initial location determination of humans and user-specific sensors that are co-located with their respective users provides identification of the users whose locations were determined. Navigation instructions provided based on the determined locations are enhanced by additional sensor data that is received from other user-specific sensors that are co-located with the users. Additionally, user privacy can be maintained by only utilizing sensor data authorized by the user, or by publishing fixed sensor data, identifying locations and movements of users, but not their identity, thereby enabling a user's computing device to match such information to the information obtained from user-specific sensors to determine the user's location.
