NASA International Space Station RFID Localization Challenge

Posted October 21, 2018

NASA has an experimental Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tracking system onboard the International Space Station (ISS) that can provide the location of tagged items with average, standard deviation, and maximum errors of 1.5, 0.5, and 3 meters, respectively. We would like to see how much improvement can be obtained using other algorithms that mine the archived RFID data.

Your task will be to detect the location of RFID tagged items within the ISS as accurately as possible. The location your algorithm returns will be compared to ground truth data, and the quality of your solution will be judged by how much your solution correlates with the expected results. See Scoring for details.
