the correct segment of an indoor route, which in turn enables the navigation system to give correct instructions.  ...  In this paper, we present a task-oriented evaluation that adapts the idea of landmark navigation: Instead of specifying the error metrically, system performance is measured by the ability to determine  ...  For an implementation of this idea, we rely on graphs to formally represent a map of the environment and define and locate relevant objects.  ...

A Multi-User Personal Indoor Localization System Employing Graph-Based Optimization

Michał R. Nowicki, Piotr Skrzypczyński
2019 Sensors  
These experiments demonstrate that graph-based optimization can be used as an efficient fusion mechanism to obtain accurate trajectory estimates both in the case of a single user and in a multi-user indoor  ...  Personal indoor localization with smartphones is a well-researched area, with a number of approaches solving the problem separately for individual users.  ...  Therefore, despite the obvious decrease in the estimation error, joint optimization of sequences shows a preference for more commonly used routes and might decrease the accuracy in the case of routes taken  ...

Semantically enriched navigation for indoor environments

Vassileios Tsetsos, Christos Anagnostopoulos, Panayotis Kikiras, Stathes Hadjiefthymiades
2006 International Journal of Web and Grid Services  
Existing approaches for indoor navigation are driven by geometric information and neglect important aspects, such as the semantics of space and user capabilities and context.  ...  Location-based mobile services have been in use, and studied, for a long time.  ...  Hence, a key feature of UNO lies in the formal definition (through restrictions, and necessary and sufficient conditions) of user classes.  ...

Indoor navigation on wheels (and on foot) using smartphones

Jo Agila Bitsch Link, Felix Gerdsmeier, Paul Smith, Klaus Wehrle
2012 2012 International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN)  
While previously we only guided the user along a single path, we now extend this for the case when a user departs from the initial route, either voluntarily or because she is lost.  ...  Combining these approaches, we show the potential of smartphone-based indoor navigation, resulting in an average error (ALE) of less than 3 m, independent of the length of the overall path and without  ...  For this, we first have to normalize the edges of our navigation graph. To this purpose, we split all edges of the original graph into a number of virtual steps, based on the step length of the user.  ...
