FootStep-Tracker: An Anchor-Free Indoor Localization System via Sensing Foot Steps
Publication/Creation DateSeptember 9 2015
DescriptionRecently, indoor localization has been a key supporting technology for most ubiquitous applications. However, most localization schemes require the deployment of the anchor nodes in advance to assist indoor localization. In this demo, we develop FootStep-Tracker, an indoor localization system via sensing the user’s footsteps, without any support infrastructures. By embedding tiny Sensor-Tag into the user’s shoes, FootStep-Tracker is able to accurately perceive the user’s moving trace, including the moving direction and distance. Moreover, by detecting the user’s activities such as going upstairs/downstairs and taking an elevator, FootStep-Tracker can correlate with the speciﬁed positions such as stairs and elevators, and determine the exacted moving traces in the indoor map.
