Claim of US Patent No. 9,288,635

1. An apparatus for managing an indoor moving object, the apparatus comprising:
a database configured to store an indoor map and positioning information of positioning devices; and
a controller configured to divide an indoor space into indoor partition spaces in semantic units by use of the indoor map
and the positioning information, and to store and manage an index that defines a relationship between the indoor partition
space in the semantic unit and a moving object, wherein the indoor partition space in the semantic unit represents a space
in which movement of the moving object is not limited due to a structure of the indoor space and which is included in a coverage
of sets of the same positioning device.
