Abstract

In this paper, a technique to improve indoor localization results on the basis of environment information is introduced and validated. A generic model of environment allows data transforming and speeding up modelling process is proposed, consisting in building two components: a description of environment data using XML and a set of automatic modules for converting XML into other types of database. In this study, the environment information is used in improving the accuracy of a WiFi-based indoor localization system by applying constraints.
