Abstract

In this chapter we propose a domain independent Pedestrian Dead Reckoning System that can be applied to any indoor environment. We describe the entire solution and adopted architecture. The user can create new indoor spaces, define reference points in it, positions for future access and also track his current location. In order to track the user's position, we solve several walking detection false positives including a common problem with most pedometers. We present results of conducted tests that show a 98% accuracy of the system. Finally, we present the developed prototype.
