CILoS: A CDMA Indoor Localization System

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

CILoS is an indoor localization system based on CDMA mobile phone signal fingerprinting. CDMA networks vary their transmission power to accommodate fluctuations in network load. This affects signal intensity and therefore limits the practicality of traditional fingerprinting approaches based on receiver signal strength (RSSI) measurements. Instead, CILoS uses fingerprints of signal delay that are robust to cell resizing. This paper demonstrates that CILoS achieves a median accuracy of 5 meters, and compares favourably to RSSI fingerprinting systems.
