Title: Problematic of Indoor Navigation and Positioning

Lecturer: Zoltan Horvath

Summary:

With the constant platform fragmentation in the global smartphone and tablet market, providing a multi-platform indoor positioning technology is an ever more complex task. RSSI-based hybrid indoor positioning technologies provide hope for a unified indoor positioning solution without the need for calibrating each and every device manually before use. But differing antenna construction, sensor designs and differences in software provide measurement readings that are challenging to compare and thus make the development of multi-platform indoor positioning solutions challenging. The different hardware and software platforms on a wide array of hardware provide massively differing measurement readings on a number of sensors essential for indoor positioning. Magnetometer, accelerometer and gyroscope readings from a multitude of devices are presented all measured from a custom-build software infrastructure designed to provide comparable readings on different platforms.
