Research in indoor location has acquired a growing importance during the recent years. The main objective is to obtain functional systems able of providing the most precise location, identification and guidance in real time. Currently, none of the existing indoor solutions have obtained location or navigation results as precise as the ones provided by the analog systems used outdoor, such as GPS. This paper presents an indoor location system based on Wi-Fi technology which, from the use of intensity maps and classifiers, allows effective and precise indoor location.
