Description of the research topic:

Indoor positioning has gained attention over the past decades. While Global Navigation Satellite Systems give a standard solution for global positioning, there is no single technology nor approach for indoor positioning tasks. The various existing indoor positioning systems are based on different technologies and use different techniques. Accuracy, cost, availability, robustness are just a few criteria of indoor positioning systems. Accurate solutions have high devel- opment, installation and maintenance cost; and may require specific hardware. So developers have to make trade-offs between accuracy and cost during the development.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) has became popular over the last years and it is available in most of the moder smart phones. In addition, the iBeacon technology based on BLE is popular among modern indoor positioning systems that show promising result. Design and development of an accurate, reliable indoor positioning method is the goal of this research project. Android plat- form is considered as the target user device, but the development of server side component and other client application may also be required.

Further requirements:
