Abstract

In recent decades, with the development of computer, indoor positioning applications have been developed rapidly. GPS has become one of the standards for outdoor positioning. However, there are great conditions for the use of GPS, GPS cannot be used indoors. At the same time, the indoor positioning scene has a great application prospect, through the use of indoor accessible signals (such as Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, UWB, etc.), according to the indoor environment and application, can be created based on the indoor positioning system. In the indoor positioning, there are two challenges, first of all, floor positioning, if the building has more than two layers, the second is planar positioning.
