A Study on the Suitability of GSM Signatures for Indoor Location



Location is an important topic on Ambient Intelligence. Different
techniques are used, alone or together, to determine the position of
people and objects. One aspect of this problem concerns to indoor
location. Various authors propose the analysis of Radio Frequency
(RF) signatures as a solution for this challenge. An approach for
indoor location is the use of RF signals acquired from a Global
System for Mobile Communications (GSM) by Mobile Units(MU).

In this paper we make a study based on around 485.000 signatures
gathered from four buildings. We present our conclusions on the
suitability and limitations of this approach for indoor location.
