Description:
While outdoor navigation is easily achieved using numerous GPS-based products, navigation inside large shopping malls, airports, and office complexes remains a challenging problem to solve. This project aims to harness the motion sensing capability of a smartphone together with a digital indoor map to provide indoor navigation services to the mobile phones. The work will involve programming the built-in motion sensors (accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope) of an Android smartphone, developing a digital indoor map, and implementing a navigation application that combines sensor readings with the digital map to provide real-time guidance to the user. Good knowledge of Java programming is required. Experience with mobile phone programming is an advantage. Good academic track record (high WAM) is essential. This project requires two students to work together in a team. There is opportunity to visit and work in the National ICT Australia (NICTA) research laboratory in Australian Technology Park.
