Abstract

Global Positioning System is the most import ant contribution in determining position of user and in direction-finding him to his target. This system uses satellites to triangulate the position of the device. Though this system has made a good impression in terms of accuracy and is the preferred location based system for outdoor positioning, when it comes to indoor environment, GPS has proved to be incompetent. The reason for its inadequacy is that in order for GPS to perform a triangulation, the appliance needs to be in line-of-sight from the satellites. Moreover, GPS system has a low eminence which make it not appropriate for indoor areas. Therefore, when it comes to indoor positioning system, other alternatives such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, RFID and Infrared are more pleasing. This project proposes to implement a mobile application which will be able to estimate the position of a user within a building using WiFi technology. The Indoor Navigation Framework we have proposed allows any wheelchair user to be guided to a desired location on his own, as long as the building itself is adopted to the novel system. Unlike the state of the art, where no automation exists for guiding a wheelchair in modern buildings.
