The mapping backpack

Here's a story I just wrote for the UC Berkeley College of Engineering on the development of an indoor-mapping backpack with a wide variety of potential uses, including building construction, commercial real estate, search and rescue, and energy audits for large buildings. It's a pretty neat tool that's been under development for a long time and is finally ready for commercialization. In fact, its primary developer, Berkeley prof Avideh Zakhor, is taking the next year off of teaching, along with a former student who also spent years on the project, to begin bringing it to market. Read all about it here, in Berkeley Engineer, and also here, at the CITRIS website.
