Abstract:
Abstract Indoor localization is one of the essential modules in mobile wireless application. In this paper, the problem of location estimation and tracking of mobile user in a fixed wireless network is addressed. A strategy based on empirical map of received signal strength with interpolation to reduce the calibration effort for radio map creation is proposed. The proposed system models the motion dynamics of a mobile user as a hidden markov model in which each state corresponds to geo-location then tracking the user location using the posterior HMM state distribution. We present experimental results that demonstrate the ability of our tracking system to estimate the user location with a high degree of accuracy and less calibration effort. Keywords: Localization and tracking, estimation theory, hidden markov model, wireless networks.
