Indoor Localization for Navigation in an Unfamiliar Environment: A Capstone Course Design Process Case Study

2017 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition Proceedings   unpublished
A public-domain design process from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was used as a template to design a capstone process that can be performed over two semesters. The process was designed to practice proposing technical solutions to relevant problems, formally plan activities prior to execution, and present results in both written and varied oral forms. That process is detailed here and connected to the public-domain template. A student project performed under the process is

The student work focuses on the navigation of indoor environments through the use of Wi-Fi power measurements. The method of estimating location was then evaluated for accuracy and bias and validated at a number of locations throughout the test area. Finally, feedback taken from course surveys is provided as a means of gauging student reaction to the course as a whole and the process itself.
