The proliferation of mobile computing devices and local-area wireless networks has fostered a growing interest in location-aware systems and services. In this paper we present RADAR, a radio-frequency (RF)-based system for locating and tracking users inside buildings. RADAR operates by recording and processing signal strength information at multiple base stations positioned to provide overlapping coverage in the area of interest. It combines empirical measurements with signal propagation… Expand

An Indoor-Location Sensing System using WLAN and Ultrasonic/Radio Technologies
TLDR
RadLoco is a locationsensing system that uses IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN survey techniques to create a radio Received Signal Strength (RSS) map of the propagation environment and makes use of a kernel-window estimation algorithm that is used to approximate the probability density function of RSS measurement and location.

A New Low-Complexity User Tracking Algorithm for WLAN-Based Positioning Systems
TLDR
A new low-complexity tracking algorithm inspired by the Fano's sequential decoding algorithm for the position tracking of a user in a WLAN-based indoor localization system is proposed, which improves the accuracy of the system, by reducing the number of position estimates which are less probable or impossible for a given environment topology.
