Description:
Wi-Fi positioning has received much attention due to its advantages with respect to GNSS unfriendly environments such as urban canyons and the wide deployment of the WiFi access points (APs). For urban canyon WiFi positioning, there are two ways to create the database, the first one is utilizing GPS, and the second one is applying map matching. Using GPS is simple, unfortunately, it does not work well in urban canyon. In this project, map matching method will be used. Ideally, when the surveying is conducted, the WiFi data should be collected continuously and the 'correct' coordinates of the positioning where the APs are detected should be linked to the data automatically. A system consists of multisensors, On-board diagnostics (OBD2) device and WiFi tag will be developed. The system will be equipped on a car and collect the WiFi data automatically when the car is drove around the area of interest.
