Calibration-free fusion of step counter and wireless fingerprints for indoor localization

Suining He, S.-H. Gary Chan, Lei Yu, Ning Liu
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing - UbiComp '15  
We propose SLAC, a fingerprint positioning framework which simultaneously localizes the target and calibrates the system.  ...  In order to improve the accuracy of fingerprint-based localization, one may fuse step counter measurement with location estimation.  ...  PFL and MLL do not consider simultaneous localization and calibration. Therefore, if the measured Wi-Fi signals get no pre-calibration, their performance degrades significantly.  ...
