The rapid accumulation of indoor positioning data is increasingly booming the interest in indoor mobility analyses. As a fundamental analysis, it is highly relevant to translate raw indoor positioning data into mobility semantics that describe what, where and when in a more concise and semantics-oriented way. Such a translation is challenging as multiple data sources are involved, raw indoor positioning data is of low quality, and translation results are hard to assess. We demonstrate a system TRIPS that streamlines the entire translation process by three functional components. The Configurator provides a standard but concise means to configure multiple input sources, including the indoor positioning data, indoor space information, and relevant contexts. The Translator cleans the indoor positioning data and exports reliable mobility semantics without manual interventions. The Viewer offers a suite of flexible operations to trace the input, output and intermediate data involved in the translation. Data analysts can interact with TRIPS to obtain the desired mobility semantics in a visual and convenient way.
