As the demand for indoor localization applications continues to grow, device-free localization based on Wi-Fi Channel State Information (CSI) has become a popular research topic. Wi-Fi signals are, however, easily affected by environmental factors such as furniture changes. These factors disable the original localization system, and rebuilding it will cost a lot of time and workforce. This is a major challenge of device-free Wi-Fi localization. To address this issue, we use a transfer learning
