Agu, Emmanuel O.
The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project was to create a platform independent, software-only, indoor geolocation solution. Locus utilizes the existing 802.11b Wireless Local Area Network infrastructure without using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or proprietary tags. Locus was designed using object-oriented techniques and implemented in Java with platform dependent modules clearly abstracted. The proximity-based location sensing algorithm compares runtime signal strength values to pre-recorded calibration values. Location is displayed on an actual floor plan using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).
