Abstract

Positioning objects has been an important topic since it is needed to locate people, guide them to a certain place, and assist companies and organizations with their assets management. Several systems and algorithms were proposed to solve the positioning problem and to enhance existing systems. In this paper, we survey various indoor positioning systems to explore the related challenges that exist in this area and evaluate some proposed solutions. We provide a categorization and classification of the current indoor positioning systems and identify some possible areas of enhancements.
