Description:
WiFi (wireless fidelity) has been widely used for internet/intranet access. The widely deployed WiFi access points (AP) and the growing number of WiFi enabled mobile devices being produced makes the WiFi signal strength (SS) based indoor positioning technology very attractive. The widely used WiFi positioning technology is called "Fingerprinting". The most popular standards 802.11b and 802.11g use the 2.4 GHz ISM band. The increasing deployment of 802.11n attracts many 5GHz ISM band user. Since the wave length of 5GHz signal is 2 times shorter than that of 2.4GHz, utilising 5GHz signal rather than 2.4GHz signal for positioning may generate more accurate results. The work will be both practical and theoretical. An experiment will be designed to compare the positioning accuracy using different signals.
