  • A case study of indoor positioning in an unmodified factory environment

    This study investigates the performance of Wi-Fi-based fingerprinting location estimation in an unmodified factory environments of Hon-Hai Precision Industry. The positioning system contains four components: temporal filter, dynamic clustering, access point selection, and pattern-matching. We evaluated the performance using realistic Wi-Fi power measurements. Results show that, although reasonable accuracy is achieved (around 72-percentil error is smaller than 7 meter), there always exist much large errors (e.g., over 13 meter). We argue that for a large factory environment, sufficient number of the-same- floor APs is required for many indoor location-based applications such as labor tracking.

  • Neural network based indoor positioning technique in optical camera communication system

    Indoor positioning technique is one of the key research issues due to highly demandable market value to provide Location Based Services (LBS) using smart phone. In optical camera communication (OCC) case one of the main advantages in indoor navigation system is LED itself can transmit location information along with unique feature of a camera to detect location using photogrammetry. However due to nonlinear and highly complicated relationship between 3D scenery and pictured 2D image need to develop complex mathematical model to estimate position of camera using photogrammetry. Neural network can be used to learn this complicated relationship without developing any complex mathematical model. We have used feed forward neural network to estimate camera position using coordinate information transmitted by LED.

  • Autonomous Indoor Navigation for Wheelchairs using Signboards

    Several studies have shown that people with disabilities benefit substantially from access to a means of independent mobility. While the requirements of many individuals with disabilities can be satisfied with manual or powered wheelchairs, a segment of the disabled community finds it difficult or impossible to use wheelchairs independently. This paper presents an autonomous indoor navigation system for wheelchairs based on sign board recognition. The system uses a deep learning model to detect signboards from surroundings and Azure Text Analytics API is used to extract the text from the signboard images. The system runs on a Raspberry Pi minicomputer and can be installed on any powered wheelchair. Experimental results and comparisons prove the efficiency of the proposed system.

  • A study on indoor position estimation based on fingerprinting using GPS signals

    It is impossible to observe the Global Positioning System (GPS) signal traveling in Line of Sight (LOS) indoors. When the position is estimated by using Non-LOS GPS received signals, it results in serious positioning error because the conventional estimation method by the GPS supposes the GPS signals in LOS. However, we may observe reflected signals from the GPS satellites even if indoors. Thus, we consider that the reflected received signals are useful for a reference of the position estimation although it is impossible to directly estimate the position. Supposing that the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) of the GPS signal varies between locations, we create a database of the RSSI of the GPS signal in each location such as the well-known fingerprinting method. It is possible to estimate the user location by querying the database even if indoors. By experiments, we evaluate the proposed method and propose a shrink method for the database additionally. We show that the proposed method can estimate indoor location well enough.

  • Li-Fi Based Blind Indoor Navigation System

    Usage of LED lights reduces 50% of total energy consumption. This can facilitate a future that is in front of us i.e. Li-Fi. This technology is used for transmitting data through VLC Communication. Visually challenged persons can be benefited by using this technology as it can guide them in an indoor system. The data transmission occurs only when a person has entered the room. It guides the person inside the room to walk confidently with the knowledge of each and every obstacle with the help of audio feedback. Comparatively, Li-Fi offers much higher speed of communication than Wi-Fi.

  • Design and development of multisensory smart assistive technology for blind persons

    The world over, prevailing technologies to assist physically challenged people are either complex or available at high cost. The recent development in the medical world, however, claim to facilitate comfort and make their life autonomously operational but lack of information, training, and functional intricacies often lead to discouraging users. This paper presents a comprehensive study of an existing system called 'Internet of Things' (ioT); this system is a programmable well-synchronized network of different electronic devices, sensors, mechanical & digital machines and highly active communication network. IoT is used to provide assistance to visually challenged (blind) people and help to extend their self-reliance not only in the known environment but also unknown places would become easily accessible to them. In this preliminary approach, various possibilities to develop multisensory network based on 'Inter of Things' have been proposed. This approach not only targets technical complications associated with available technologies but also introduces inexpensive and user-friendly applications which can easily be employed to provide comfort.

  • Location estimation algorithm using smart antenna

    This paper propose user location estimation method which uses smart antenna based reception direction. Existing AOA method is capable of producing error due to the change of azimuth. The range of error increases as the distance between a terminal and base station increases. In order to solve this problem, the method of measuring the reception direction of signal and TOA from several branches can be proposed. Our proposed method is verified by creating same error of azimuth environment by using variety of computer simulations. Our proposal of location estimation method shows increased performance of location estimation than AOA method.

  • Subway train stop detection using magnetometer sensing data

    The schedule of subway provides information on the arrival and departure of a train at stations. The subway passengers often refer to the subway schedule to make an appointment or to make their own schedule. Many apps on subway schedule are available for smartphone users. For example, in Korea, there are more than 10 apps that users can download to get the schedule of subway. However, most of the apps provide the schedule of subway based on fixed time table. As a result, there is no way to inform the differences between the time on the time table and the actual arrival time of a subway train. In this paper, we propose a method to provide correct information on the schedule of subway. Detecting the arrival of a train is required, and the difference between the time on time table and the actual arrival time of the train should be known. The method detects the arrival of a train based on the magnetometer sensing data. Then it identifies the arrived stop and computes the time differences between the schedule and the actual. The identified time differences are reflected to the time table to inform more correct schedule to the rest of the users. When we tested the detection accuracy of a subway train using the proposed technique at Seoul subway line, it showed over 90% accurate results. This indicates that the proposed method can be widely accepted to the subway schedule app developers.

  • Battery-Free Sensor Network Based Navigation Systems:Theory and Applications

    Battery-free sensor networks are an emerging field with very promising applications. Passive sensors without batteries can resist extreme conditions and can be placed in practically any location, and do not need replacement for a long time. They are the perfect candidates for some of the applications we propose in this paper. Currently they are being used for structure analysis, assembly line control, and jet engine monitoring. We propose to add indoor localization and vehicle navigation to that list. Indoor navigation systems would open the door to many different uses, and embedded tag based road navigation systems would allow vehicles to travel with limited or no GPS connectivity. Overall it is a promising field and one that can benefit immensely from further research.

  • Reduction of ultrasonic indoor localization infrastructure based on the use of graph information

    This paper presents a constrained navigation on a Metric Description Graph (MDG) based on the use of a H-Infinity Filter (H-∞) including the restriction on the graph as a fictitious observation. The main goal is to reduce the number of the required ultrasonic beacons for covering an extensive indoor area. This reduction of the localization infrastructure involves an increment of the error in the estimation of the position, which can be acceptable depending on the application (i. e. people navigation). This approach is especially useful when the target is navigating along corridors or narrow passing areas since it is not necessary an accurate position estimation. The proposal has been simulated in a localization area describing a real environment. It has been applied for different noise conditions of the relative information (odometry) comparing the performance between a traditional beacon infrastructure and the reduced one including the constraints of the MDG.
