This paper introduces WiBEST, Wireless Body and Environmental Sensor Tracking platform, for personal indoor positioning. WiBEST is built with portable on-body sensor nodes and assisted sensor nodes deployed in the targeted indoor area. It takes a hybrid approach with pedestrian dead reckoning and radio-based localization and explore the their cooperative efforts. Real-time inertial measurements are combined with RSSI-based information, and then processed with an Extended Kalman Filter to be weighted in the location estimation according to their reliability. WiBEST also incorporates with an adaptive Step Length Algorithm to reduce the deviation of the measurements.
