BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE THROUGH REAL-TIME TRACKING - Using a Location System Towards Behaviour Pattern Extraction

Pedro Abreu, Vasco Vinhas, Pedro Mendes

Abstract

Nowadays, tracking systems constitute an important knowledge support in order to compute important measurements in companys processes efficiency. As consequence of that, this project proposes a methodology and an application, based on a tracking system to obtain, by automatic means, dynamic location data on items. This solution assumes that the client carries or drives an item of some kind. In each item there is an identifying tag attached and hidden in order to make the item at hand detectable by all the sensors that are scattered around the area. Because of the fact that the tag is light and hidden and also has no information regarding the specific person/agent this process is completely transparent to the client or robot that is being implicitly tracked. This system produces real-time shop floor visualization maps with intelligible data on online item localization; individual item complete path routes; online and historical population density rates and path routes concentration; and also item vision enabled concentration maps as emulation for item omnidirectional vision considering occlusions. This proposed system might be useful in many different areas, for instance in a traditional retail environment tracing clients through a commercial area or enabling item tracking and route analysis in a hospital.
