High Precise Smartphone Positioning Indoors Based on Multiple Sources.
This presentation introduces a solution of smartphone positioning indoors by integrating the measurements of the smartphone build-in sensors and RF radios together with various high precision positioning techniques based on e.g. camera re-sectioning, acoustic ranging, and Angle of Arrival from Bluetooth antenna array. The high precise positioning techniques are used to control error propagation as the signal coverage area of these positioning techniques are limited, while the built-in sensors and RF radios are used to fill the gaps among the hot spots covered by the high precise positioning techniques. With our approach, no addition hardware is needed to add to the regular smartphones.
