Navigation of individuals as well as optimization of transportation in the complex 3D structure of hospitals is a challenging task. Existing systems use different kind of infrastructure to allow location and tracking with the disadvantage of high setup costs and times as well as the risks of constantly changing technology. Solving the main tasks with the already existing infrastructure is therefore extremely desirable.
