The main research content of this article is based on fingerprint method of AP selection and location estimation algorithm. We introduce RANSAC algorithm used in image processing art to AP selection in the online stage for external detection. It can filter to remove the APs impacted by environmental variation, not only reduces the amount of calculation but also improves the positioning accuracy. Aiming at the disadvantages of traditional Bayesian algorithm and KNN algorithm, we improve the two…
