WiFi localization and tracking of indoor moving objects is an important problem in many contexts of ubiquitous buildings, first responder environments, and others. Previous approaches in WiFi-based indoor localization and tracking either assume prior knowledge of indoor environment or assume many data samples from location-fixed WiFi sources (i.e. anchor points). However, such assumptions are not always true, especially in emergency scenarios. This paper explores the possibility of real-time… CONTINUE READING
