Description:
Geomagnetic field variation in support for indoor positioning and navigation has recently attracted considerable interest because of the advantage that technology based on the geomagnetic field has no infrastructure needs. Several companies such as Samsung believe that the geomagnetic field for indoor positioning has great potential.Test using sensitive magnetometers has confirmed that it is possible to use geomagnetic field information for indoor positioning purposes, however there are still issues to be addressed before it can be used in real applications. . For example, are the low cost built-in magnetometers in mobile phones good enough for positioning purposes based on "fingerprinting" approaches? Is the geomagnetic field temporally stable for very long period of time?
This project will also develop a app based on Android mobile phones to navigate people in a building first, and then extend to the whole UNSW campus.
