Typical applications: physically larger maps on large factories, large warehouses; maps comprised of several buildings, several floors
Examples of usage: tracking of a cabin of a bridge crane as an independent submap(map)/island inside a map. The map now becomes a super-map, because it already includes other maps, though the maps are rather primitive and consist of a single submap (island). The 1D coordinate of the cabin measured in the islands is, for example, the Y coordinate along the bridge crane. Several such cranes with a typical width of ~36m inside a 480m-long factory can coexist. Each of the bridges will be handled as independent maps/islands. The 1D coordinate of the bridge itself along the 480m length of the factory will be the X coordinate inside the super-map
Additional information for better understanding: regular maps consist of one or several submaps. But the submaps inside the map are united into a single map. The submaps are dependent on each other in terms of update rate, handovers, etc. The MMSW0007 license allows building independent islands (submaps or actually maps) inside a map. Effectively, the islands starts operating as independent maps inside a super-map
The islands (submaps) must be physically isolated from other islands or the main map so that the ultrasound pulses from neighboring submaps wouldn’t interfere with the neighbors
It is a system level feature and independent on beacons’ hardware
Supported by newer Modems v5.1 and Super-Modems
Currently supported in MF NIA. Future support in IA and NIA is possible and available on request
Islands must be physically isolated in terms of ultrasound propagation from other islands or the main map. In practice, it means >50m distance. Or the islands must operate on different ultrasound frequencies than their neighbors
