This project is for implementation and analysis of the usage of smart phone sensors for indoor navigation, without the use of Global Positioning Systems. This is to extend advantages of outdoor navigation for indoor navigation, by making use of existing technologies and devices to facilitate navigation for achieving this, without the use of extra/expensive hardware. This paper details the development of an indoor navigation system on a smart-phone running Android operating system. Research of previous work in the field preceded the development of a new approach that uses data from the device's accelerometer, and compass to determine user's position, direction of motion.
