Wifi-based Indoor Navigation with Mobile GIS and Speech Recognition

  title={Wifi-based Indoor Navigation with Mobile GIS and Speech Recognition},
  author={Jiangfan Feng and Yanhong Liu},
As the development of mobile communications and wireless networking technology and people's increasing demand for wireless location services, positioning services are more and more important and become the focus of research. However, the most common technology which supports outdoor positioning services is global positioning system (GPS), but GPS has been subjected to some restrictions in the complex environment. WLAN (Wireless Local Area Networks) has matured gradually in recent years, so…

Automatic Security Monitoring and Alert System through Sound Analysis

An automatic means of monitoring and recognition within the vicinity of an environment in cases of criminal and distress scenarios will be able to eliminate the physical placement of security guards within a vicinity, thus improving personnel privacy and reducing expenses while at the same time, increasing effectiveness with regard to security monitoring and alerting in case of incidences.

Smart Geographic object: Toward a new understanding of GIS Technology in Ubiquitous Computing

The main idea is the instrumentation of the geographic environment through the instrumentations of geographic objects composing it, and how this instrumentation can meet the current limitations of GIS technology, and offers a new stage of rapprochement between the earth and its abstraction.



A study on outdoor positioning technology using GPS and WiFi networks

This study proposed a positioning technology based on a portable mobile device with GPS and WiFi-based Pattern Matching Method, to design a Selective Weighting Scheme, and validated that the proposed technology is effective with an average positioning error of 3.8m less than that of GPS.
