Undagrid is a small company that was founded in 2014. The main service they provide is to airports. Airports have large amounts of movable assets (that are not airplanes), such as baggage carts, cargo trailers, dollies, mobile (service) stairs and many more. If some of this equipment gets lost, the airport could lose a large amount of time (and thus money). Undagrid provides a solution: they mount small trackers on all the movable assets and install gateways all over the airport.

The purpose of the internship was to research and develop testing methods for the localization service. There were two parts to this assignment: unit testing and system testing.
