We investigate properties and the accuracy of grid-based Bayesian filters for indoor localization. We use only the compass and a (hardware or software) step detector which are available in commodity smartphones. In the case when a hardware step detector is not present, we propose a reliable step detection algorithm using the accelerometer. Our main goal is… CONTINUE READING
