Which model of transceiver (or transmitter/receiver) chipset do you suggest for an Indoor GPS System with the following characteristics?

I will have "4 receiver and 1 transmitter" or "5 transceiver" .


- RSSI (Received Signal Strength Identificator)
- Embeeded microcontroller
- Around 10 dbm Output Power
- 400-500 MHz Frequency Range
- 3 to 5 V DC Supply
- Low peak current ( around 5 mA)
- Range (3-100 m)

Thanks for your help...

Try this www.rfsolutions.co.uk they have many modules, many of these modules will cover your requirements

Did you chose which INDOOR GPS module that you will use, I am trying to find an Indoor GPS receiver works without a clear view of the sky ( not AGPS), can you help me to find some module??

Thanks

Hi,
what leads you to believe indoor GPS is at all possible? the satellite signals are far weaker than GSM signals from local cell towers that do/can find a circuitous path into a building,but a GPS needs two of more satellite signals to establish a correct phasing/time between them, reflected signals just hugely throw out the accuracy.
Open sky is a requirement I would have thought, unless you know something else ???

"what leads you to believe indoor GPS is at all possible?"

Perheps the answer is on changing the signal near the buildings, but I'm just guessing. The problem arrising from cell tower signals is the distance travelled by the gprs/gsm signal that changes where it finds obstacles, of course you'll have always acess to it in a building but the uncertainty is very high, and for the purpose intended it's not acceptable.
