Modern smartphones normally incoporate a high sensitivity GPS receiver, Wi-Fi card, and sensors such as accelerometer, digital compass and digital barometer. These components are low-cost, and are designed mainly for leisure and gaming applications. This study aims to investigate the combination of the built-in GPS and sensor data of smartphones for localization in dense urban environments, where very often satellite signals are obstructed by tall buildings or large structures, causing… CONTINUE READING
