Location, location, location. That tends to describe property values, though it's also critical to the Internet of Things (IoT).

Communication is useful, but knowing where a device or sensor is located can be invaluable information. Global positioning systems (GPS) provide this type of information using satellites and special receivers. However, it doesn't work well indoors and there are some limits outdoors, too. 

Deeyook is working with Wi-Fi chip vendors to make it possible to determine device position via triangulation. I spoke with Gideon Rottem, CEO and Founder at Deeyook, about the company's technology and how it works. 

Deeyook's patented wireless-based firmware uses self-learning AI technology to provide location information with a precision of about 10 cm. It requires support in Wi-Fi access points and delivers absolute position information indoors and outdoors as long as suitable access points are nearby.
