This white paper proposes an efficient and reliable Wi-Fi real-time indoor positioning system using fingerprinting algorithm. The proposed positioning system comprises of an Android App equipped with the same algorithms, which is tested and evaluated in multiple indoor scenarios.
Indoor positioning is huge. Why? Because we spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, at the mall etc. With a lot of active research in this area, different approaches are proposed regularly. In this whitepaper, we evaluate BLE beacons for indoor positioning and discuss its pros and cons.
