Build Status Maintainability npm version


This repository contains the LocalStorage component for OpenHPS (Open Source Hybrid Positioning System). It includes a data service that can be used to store data frames, objects and node data in a browser local strage.

OpenHPS is a data processing positioning framework. It is designed to support many different use cases ranging from simple positioning such as detecting the position of a pawn on a chessboard using RFID, to indoor positioning methods using multiple cameras.


  • LocalStrageDriver that can be used to initialize a DataService or as a standalone data service.

Getting Started

If you have npm installed, start using @openhps/localstorage with the following command.

npm install @openhps/localstorage --save


You can use a LocalStorageDriver in a data service such as a DataObjectService to use the driver to store data objects of a specific type.

import { ModelBuilder, DataObjectService, DataObject, ReferenceSpace } from '@openhps/core';
import { LocalStorageDriver } from '@openhps/localstorage';

.addService(new DataObjectService(new LocalStorageDriver(DataObject, {
namespace: 'myapp'
.addService(new DataObjectService(new LocalStorageDriver(ReferenceSpace, {
namespace: 'myapp',
compress: true // Compress data
.addShape(/* ... */)
.build().then(model => {
/* ... */

Driver Options

compress: false, // Compress stored data with an LZ-based compression
chunkSize: 10, // Chunk size for querying
namespace: 'default' // Namespace used for storage


The framework is open source and is mainly developed by PhD Student Maxim Van de Wynckel as part of his research towards Hybrid Positioning and Implicit Human-Computer Interaction under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Beat Signer.
