The lack of floor plans is a critical reason behind the current sporadic availability of indoor localization service. Service providers have to go through effort-intensive and time-consuming business negotiations with building operators, or hire dedicated personnel to gather such data. In this paper, we propose Jigsaw, a floor plan reconstruction system(More)
—Mainstream indoor localization technologies rely on RF signatures that require extensive human efforts to measure and periodically re-calibrate. Although recent crowdsourcing based work has started to address the issue, incentives are still lacking for wide user adoption. Thus the progress to ubiquitous localization remains slow. In this paper, we explore(More)
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) is a widespread sleep-disordered breathing disease, which leads to repetitive hypoxemia, hypercapnia and interruptions of the normal sleep pattern. Considering its severe negative impact on human health, long-term monitoring of OSAS is necessary. Current OSAS monitoring systems require patients to stay in the hospital(More)
We present VeLoc, a smartphone-based vehicle localization approach that tracks the vehicle's parking location without GPS or WiFi signals. It uses only the embedded accelerometer and gyroscope sensors. VeLoc harnesses constraints imposed by the map and landmarks (e.g., speed bumps) recognized from inertial data, employs a Bayesian filtering framework to(More)
Although location awareness and turn-by-turn instructions are prevalent outdoors due to GPS, we are back into the darkness in uninstrumented indoor environments such as underground parking structures. We get confused, disoriented when driving in these mazes, and frequently forget where we parked, ending up circling back and forth upon return.In this paper,(More)
—Existing mainstream indoor localization technologies mainly rely on RF signatures and thus incur significant and recurring labor cost to measure the time-varying signature map. We have proposed a smartphone localization system using the embedded gyroscope for triangulation from nearby physical features (e.g., store logos) recognized from photo-taking. It(More)
