DeepBLE: Generalizing RSSI-based Localization Across Different Devices

  title={DeepBLE: Generalizing RSSI-based Localization Across Different Devices},
  author={Harsh Agarwal and Navyata Sanghvi and Vivek Roy and Kris Kitani},
Accurate smartphone localization (< 1-meter error) for indoor navigation using only RSSI received from a set of BLE beacons remains a challenging problem, due to the inherent noise of RSSI measurements. To overcome the large variance in RSSI measurements, we propose a data-driven approach that uses a deep recurrent network, DeepBLE, to localize the smartphone using RSSI measured from multiple beacons in an environment. In particular, we focus on the ability of our approach to generalize across… Expand
