Advanced Indoor Positioning Using Zigbee Wireless Technology

Advanced Indoor Positioning Using Zigbee Wireless Technology The paper presents the results of the project which examines the level of accuracy that can be achieved in precision indoor positioning using a new improved Zigbee network fingerprint method. This method can provide more accurate positioning by filtering algorithm for improving the fingerprint Zigbee database accuracy. In our experiment the following two steps have been completed. Firstly, we filtered out the interference data generated in the fingerprint database source data acquisition process what improved the accuracy of establishing the fingerprint database. Next, the nearest algorithm, the weighted nearest algorithm and Bayesian algorithm were used to calculate pedestrian’s location, and then the results are compared and analyzed. As a result, the average error with the improved fingerprint database is less than or equal to 0.81 m in a long distance range. The accuracy of the results got much better compared with the results without filtering. A newly developed ZigBee system by us can be applied to the location based services in a bigger space inside the buildings (distances up to 40 m) or in the underground mines.
