Thanks to geolocalized remote control : the sound will follow

Dematerialized music and MP3 players offer to the user the possibility of carrying his musical content everywhere. However, at home, the music collection is generally not centralized, split between different rooms and audio supports (CDs, MP3s, etc). In this paper, we propose a multi-room sound system based on several sound satellites distributed among the rooms of the house, and on a remote control which is able to localize itself with the help of available Wi-Fi networks. The user only has to choose his favorite music on the remote control, and then the music will automatically start on the nearest satellites. Our goal is to offer an Ambient Intelligence audio system, inspired by the latest multi-room sound systems, which takes advantage of an indoor localization system based on Wi-Fi in order to propose a new experience to the user.
