In this work we present a pedestrian navigation system for indoor environments based on the dead reckoning positioning method, 2D barcodes, and data from accelerometers and magnetometers. All the sensing and computing technologies of our solution are available in common smart phones. The need to create indoor navigation systems arises from the(More)
Inertial navigation systems (INS) are aimed at supporting the navigation of objects and/or users making use of a computer equipped with motion (accelerometers) and rotation (gyroscopes) sensors to continuously calculate their motion and position. These are quite useful when the GPS signal is not available, such as in indoor scenarios. Thanks to the(More)
This article describes a programming experiment in which an entire city is the playground. Building on the foundation of the SmartSantander FIRE infrastructure, the CityScripts project proposes an Internet of Things scenario where sensors and actuators in a smart city have digital counterparts and can be used to compose mash-ups with Internet of Things(More)
