Guidelines for Testing Dispatchable Location
|Publication Date:||1 July 2017|
This document presents guidelines for the testing and evaluation of dispatchable location within the framework of the 9-1-1 Location Technologies Test Bed. These guidelines identify baseline methodologies to be used in the testing process as well as the evaluation methods used to determine the level of 9-1-1 indoor location performance achieved from utilizing the NEAD. The NEAD is populated with the civic addresses and additional information associated with Wi-Fi Access Points (APs) and Bluetooth beacons.
These guidelines are based on the assumption that testing will be conducted in various types of indoor structures reflecting the characteristics found in the four morphologies: Dense Urban, Urban, Suburban, and Rural.
The purpose of this document is to develop the framework for testing dispatchable location in the Test Bed. The document defines the methodology for performing the testing and the approach to evaluating the test results and determining the level of precision of the dispatchable location delivered, i.e., Dispatchable Location Level 2 (DL2), Dispatchable Location Level 1 (DL1), Civic Address. It also provides for determination of the accuracy of the geodetic location delivered along with the dispatchable location.
The guidelines in this document are to be used in defining the test procedures to be followed for testing dispatchable location in the Test Bed. They are also to be followed in interpreting and assessing those results
