Executive Summary

For the various applications in home automation, the service system requires to precisely estimate user's locations by certain sensors. It is considered as a challenge to automatically serve a mobile user in the house. However, indoor localization cannot be carried out effectively by the well-know Global Positioning System (GPS). In recent years, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are thus popularly used to locate a mobile object in an indoor environment. Some physical features are widely discussed to solve indoor localization in WSN. In this paper, the authors inquired about the RSSI solutions on indoor localization, and proposed a Closer Tracking Algorithm (CTA) to locate a mobile user in the house.
