Abstract

Indoor positioning technique, also known as localization is an application that can benefit from the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) infrastructure and WLAN enabled devices. This paper discusses implementation of an indoor wireless localization network by using the existing WLAN infrastructure based on a novel clustering technique. Design criteria and parameters involved to form a cluster group has been defined and presented. The preliminary results from this study indicates the proposed clustering technique able to perform indoor localization, whereby total of 17 cluster groups have been generated from the 82 anchor points in an indoor area. Several proposal enhancements also presented in order to enhance the accuracy and improve the selection criteria of the clustering method.
