Location-aware services can benefit from indoor location tracking. The widespread adoption of Wi-Fi as the network infrastructure creates the opportunity of deploying WiFi-based location services with no additional hardware costs. Additionally, the ability to let a mobile device determine its location in an indoor environment supports the creation of a new range of mobile control system applications. Main area of interest is in a model of a radio-frequency based system enhancement for locating

The developed framework as it is described here joins the concepts of location and user tracking as an extension for a new control system. The experimental framework prototype uses a WiFi network infrastructure to let a mobile device determine its indoor position. User location is used for data pre-buffering and pushing information from server to user's PDA. All server data is saved as artifacts (together) with its position information in building.
