An indoor positioning system is a system to locate objects or people inside a building using sensory information collected by mobile devices. We know that GPS can’t perform well for indoor positioning as signal cannot penetrate walls and are subject to multi-path distortion. Wi-Fi which is freely available in the building can penetrate walls and the signal is potent enough for Indoor Positioning. Other technologies like iBeacon, RFID tags, VLC, and ultrasound can be used for indoor positioning… Expand


ALPS: A Bluetooth and Ultrasound Platform for Mapping and Localization
The Acoustic Location Processing System (ALPS), a platform that augments BLE transmitters with ultrasound in a manner that improves ranging accuracy and can help users configure indoor localization systems with minimal effort, is presented. Expand

It is concluded that PDR techniques alone can offer good short- to medium- term tracking under certain circumstances, but that regular absolute position fixes from partner systems will be needed to ensure long-term operation and to cope with unexpected behaviours. Expand
Wi-Fi-based indoor positioning: Basic techniques, hybrid algorithms and open software platform
In urbanized and indoor environments, outdoor positioning systems, such as Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs), are often inaccurate and adaptations of such systems to those contexts areExpand
Survey of Indoor Positioning Systems Based on Ultra-wideband (UWB) Technology
The conception, standardization, and advantages of UWB were introduced, and then four location measure techniques based on UWB technology are analyzed, and the applications and future trends for the technology are provided. Expand
Privacy-Preserving Indoor Localization on Smartphones
The proposed Temporal Vector Map algorithm, allows a user to accurately localize by exploiting a k-Anonymity Bloom (kAB) filter and a bestNeighbors generator of camouflaged localization requests, both of which are shown to be resilient to a variety of privacy attacks. Expand
Indoor three-dimensional location estimation based on LED visible light communication
A demonstration shows that the proposed algorithm can obtain a user's position, including height, accurately and without inter-cell interference. Expand
On Indoor Positioning
