Indoor position sensor

Description

A mobile device is capable of determining its position to an accuracy of up to 10 meters when outdoors. However indoor position requires a greater degree of accuracy to be useful (<1m) and is hampered by lack of GPS line of sight. 

This project will investigate the use of a variety of sensors in combination (Magnetic field, Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, orientation) to create a virtual sensor which estimates indoor position. This approach will utilise a technique known as sensor fusion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensor_fusion).
