Abstract

Guests in unfamiliar buildings often do not know where to go to or what is around them. This project sought to alleviate this problem using a combination of smartphone and iBeacon technology. Received signal strength (RSS) information was obtained from iBeacon devices deployed in Atwater Kent Labs on the WPI campus. This information was fed into an Android application, which localized the user using a least mean squares (LMS) algorithm and provided contextual information to the user about their surroundings.
