Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR LOCATING AN OBJECT
Abstract:
A system for locating an object is proposed. The system has a radio transmitter which is assigned to an object and is set up to transmit a radio signal, a mobile terminal which is set up to receive the radio signal from the radio transmitter, and a processing unit. The mobile terminal is set up to transmit the received radio signal and a position of the mobile terminal to the processing unit, and the processing unit is set up to determine a position of the object on the basis of the received radio signal and the position of the mobile terminal. A method for locating an object is also proposed. The proposed system and method make it possible to determine the position of different objects by using mobile terminals which move in a building or an installation. These objects are equipped with radio transmitters for this purpose.
