Many pervasive applications deal with relative positions between interacting entities rather than global coordinates. The Relate project developed sensing methods and a modular system architecture for peer-to-peer relative positioning. It studied the methods and architecture in application case studies on mobile spatial interaction, firefighter navigation, and wearable activity recognition.
