Seminar Talk: Indoor Positioning via Mobile Sensing
Abstract: Accurate indoor position and movement information of devices enables numerous opportunities for location-based services. Services such as guiding users through buildings, highlighting nearby services, or tracking the number of steps taken are some of the opportunities available when devices compute accurate positioning information. GPS provides accurate localization results in an outdoor environment, such as navigation information for vehicles. Unfortunately, GPS cannot be applied indoors pervasively due to the various interferences. Although extensive research has been dedicated to this field, accurate indoor location information remains a challenge without the incorporation of expensive devices or sophisticated infrastructures within buildings. We explore some practical approaches for indoor map construction and indoor positioning.
