Abstract

Location Fingerprinting (LF) is a promising localization technique that enables many commercial and emergency Location-Based Services (LBS). The idea of this paper is two- folded. First, a Gaussian Process (GP) is used during the training (offline) phase of an indoor positioning algorithm to generate the fingerprint database, reducing the expensive labor of acquiring and maintaining the fingerprint database significantly. Furthermore, during the positioning (online) phase, a Smart algorithm (already proposed in [1]) is used for reducing the computation effort for positioning calculation. We call our idea Smart2since it enhances the advantages of the base Smart approach. Specifically, Smart2reduces the labor during the offline phase by trading it with a small positioning error and, at the same time, it limits the energy consumption in the online phase without incurring in any additional accuracy detriment.
