By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 24, 25-42, 2011
Abstract
A novel indoor positioning system based on received signal strength (RSS) in wireless networks with high accuracy is presented in this paper. The three improvement mechanisms, called signal strength filter, user location filter and path tracking assistance, are employed to improve the positioning accuracy of the system. The comprehensive performance of the proposed system is analyzed in detail and compared with the Radar system. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed system in this paper can improve 80% accuracy in 3 meters of Radar system to 93% in typical office building testbed. Therefore, the indoor positioning system presented in this paper has the advantages of high accuracy, low cost and easy expansibility, and it can be used to locate people and assets in the fields of logistics, healthcare, and manufacturing.
