Abstract
Indoor positioning technology or the technique for locating a mobile user is the base technology for indoor location-aware computing. In general, there are a large variety of location-based applications and services that rely on an accurate and stable location estimation system such as warehouse management, point-of-interest, infotainment, patient monitoring, mobile healthcare, and customer/consumer behavior analysis within an enclosed area like a shopping mall or exhibition center. Such location-based services play a crucial part in enabling e-commerce, and m-commerce, and eventually a critical part to bring the community to the era of ubiquitous/pervasive computing. In view of the heavy usage and progressively growing coverage of WLAN within the indoor environment, and the research studies on ways to do WLAN positioning and tracking, there is a need to investigate the feasibility of using the WLAN infrastructure to locate a mobile user as well as to find an efficient and effective way to track users’ behavior and provides location-based services in libraries, museums, shopping malls, and exhibition centers, and to ensure personal safety in hospitals and elderly centers. This talk will focus on the technical as well as the practical issues on Wi-Fi localization and compare our proposed method with some of the classical approaches in the literature. We will also discuss about how the proposed method is to be applied to an exhibition center in tracking users’ behavior. We are entering a new era of computing – the era of ubiquitous/pervasive computing where we can retrieve any data from any device using any network at anytime and anyplace, and this is the technology that will bring us a step closer to a more secure and more convenient ubiquitous computing society.
