Indoor wireless localisation network using a dynamic position tracking model

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • There has been great interest in using position location systems for indoor environments. Indoor

    environments present many challenges to using wireless localisation systems, due to the interference caused

    by metal beams and walls present. Current position localisation systems use wireless channel propagation

    characteristics, such as receive signal strength to localise a user’s position. We present an inexpensive and

    robust wireless localisation network that can track the location of users in an indoor environment. Our

    localisation network uses a dynamic position tracking model to improve the real-time tracking of mobile

    nodes. The localisation network uses the Zigbee/802.15.4 wireless communications protocol. Reference

    nodes are placed at known positions in a building. The reference nodes are used by mobile nodes, carried by

    users to localise their position. Further work involves improving the dynamic position tracking model by

    incorporating the use of motion sensors to aid tracking and to investigate how large numbers of active users

    can be supported.
