Indoor localization with high accuracy have been a high intensive research area in recent years, because it is the foundation to achieve reliable location-based services for indoor environments. Accurate indoor positioning allow the development of various mobile and pervasive applications, such as navigating inside buildings that you are not familiar with, advertisement promotion in airports or shopping malls, location detection of assets in a warehouse, patient tracking inside the building of a hospital, navigation during emergency rescue and emergency personnel positioning in a disaster area. The goal of this short course is twofold:
1- Introduce the area of indoor positioning, potential uses cases and opportunities, and the challenges that make indoor positioning a much harder problem compared to outdoors.
2 Explore the theory for positioning techniques & algorithms and how these can be extended to indoor positioning with various information that exist on a mobile device.
