Fast Indoor Radio-Map Building for RSSI-Based Localization Systems
Wireless Indoor localization systems based on RSSI-values typically consist of an offline training phase and online position determination phase. During the offline phase, geo-referenced RSSI measurement, called fingerprints, are recorded to build a radiomap of the building. This radiomap is then searched during the position determination phase to estimate another nodes' location. Usually the radiomap is build manually, either by users pin-pointing their location on a ready-made floorplan or by moving in pre-specified patterns while scanning the network for RSSI values.
