The recent proliferation of location-based services (LBSs) has necessitated the development of effective indoor positioning solutions. In such a context, wireless local area network (WLAN) positioning is a particularly viable solution in terms of hardware and installation costs due to the ubiquity of WLAN infrastructures. This paper examines three aspects of the problem of indoor WLAN positioning using received signal strength (RSS). First, we show that, due to the variability of RSS features… Expand
