A Two Phase Hybrid RSS/AoA Algorithm for Indoor Device Localization Using Visible Light

A two phase hybrid algorithm for estimating the location of a mobile node, which has the capability of measuring signal strength, azimuth, and elevation, in a smart space environment over the visible light channel is proposed. In contrast to conventional triangulation approaches which are performed in a simplified plane, the smart room architecture requires a non-planar solution due to the illumination requirement. Furthermore, conventional triangulation approaches can at times produce numerically ill-defined solutions, thereby prohibiting a notion of target location.
