Indoor-Navigation Using Internal Sensors of Devices Running Apple iOS and iBeacon Technology

I.A. Ovchinnikov, A.S. Smirnov, A.M. Tolstaya


This article focuses on the development of an indoor navigation system consisting of mobile devices running Apple iOS and Beacon-tags. The paper sets out the basic principles of the inertial navigation system functioning based on the data that was obtained from the inner sensors of the device as well as a mechanism for RFID trilateration. The developed methods can perform the task of positioning in a room with accuracy that is not lower than that of the analogues with a lower amount of Beacon-tags.
