Abstract

For the various applications in home automation, the service system requires to precisely estimate user’s locations by certain sensors. It is considered as a challenge to automatically serve a mobile user in the house. However, indoor localization cannot be carried out effectively by the well-know Global Positioning System (GPS). In recent years, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are thus popularly used to locate a mobile object in an indoor environment. Some physical features are widely discussed to solve indoor localization in WSN. In this paper, we inquired about the RSSI solutions on indoor localization, and proposed a Closer Tracking Algorithm (CTA) to locate a mobile user in the house. The proposed CTA was implemented by using ZigBee CC2431 modules. The experimental results show that the proposed CTA can accurately determine the position with error distance less than 1 meter. At the same time, the proposed CTA has at least 85% precision when the distance is less than one meter.
