Indoor Positioning System with Light Fidelity Assistance

  • Shreya G. Tendulkar and Tanaya M. Sakhalkar


With the advancement in technology, there has been a rise in the need of smart homes, smart working premises and advanced recreational spaces. Indoor navigation is one of such technologies which has made living spaces smarter and convenient. Various technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and RFID can be used to provide indoor navigation services. The use of Wi-Fi based indoor navigation allows to locate and track smartphone users within an area, therefore, location-aware intelligent solutions can be applied to increase the ease of access. These location-aware indoor services require real-time indoor localization with high accuracy, which is a necessity to guarantee high quality of service in smart spaces .In this paper we propose a new Wi-Fi based indoor localization technique that can significantly improve indoor positioning accuracy with the help of Li-Fi(Light fidelity)  assisted coefficient calibration. The proposed technique combines the existing wi-fi structure along with a new updated Li-Fi framework  to provide indoor accurate localization .
