Abstract

Pervasive indoor positioning is a key enabler for ubiquitous computing. Although a number of indoor positioning systems exist, we identify that there still is a barrier between these and the consumer. There is a need for a cost-effective, practical solution that can be easily designed, built, tested and deployed.We have built a low-cost indoor positioning system with off-the-shelf commodity hardware, to provide an example of an accessible ubiquitous platform for developers, academia, private individuals, big and small companies and institutions. The system is low-power, modular, performs auto-calibration, can track any WiFi-enabled device and can be used for other applications alongside indoor positioning
