DESIGN OF BLUETOOTH LOW ENERGY BASED INDOOR POSITIONING SYSTEM

Deniz TAŞKIN [1]


Nowadays, there is an increasing demand for indoor positioning systems as services based on location are very important in mobile applications. Since Global Positioning System (GPS) makes only outdoor positioning successful, there is a need of new approaches for indoor positioning systems.  Some techniques on indoor positioning systems have been proposed in this scope, but they have not reached to the success of outdoor systems in terms of speed, consistency and power management. The aim of this study is to develop an indoor positioning system using latest Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. This system consists of BLE sensor nodes, a mobile device and a mobile application that calculates indoor position by measuring the signal levels of the sensor nodes designed. BLE sensor nodes have low power consumption and can be powered by a coin battery. Since most consumers have a mobile phone today, the system can be used easily by installing a mobile application.
