This paper describes the design and realization of a magnetic indoor positioning system. The system is entirely realized using off-the-shelf components and is based on inductive coupling between resonating coils. Both system-level architecture and realization details are described along with experimental results. The realized system exhibits a maximum positioning error of <10 cm in an indoor environment over a 3 × 3 m2 area. Extensive experiments in larger areas, in nonline-of-sight conditions, and in unfavorable geometric configurations, show submeter accuracy, thus validating the robustness of the system with respect to other existing solutions.

Abstract

This paper describes the design and realization of a magnetic indoor positioning system. The system is entirely realized using off-the-shelf components and is based on inductive coupling between resonating coils. Both system-level architecture and realization details are described along with experimental results. The realized system exhibits a maximum positioning error of <10 cm in an indoor environment over a 3 × 3 m2 area. Extensive experiments in larger areas, in nonline-of-sight conditions, and in unfavorable geometric configurations, show submeter accuracy, thus validating the robustness of the system with respect to other existing solutions.
