Bottom Line: Different middle-term navigation trajectories that move in and out of an indoor area are combined to make up the database.Furthermore, we evaluate the effect of WiFi database shifts on WiFi fingerprinting using the database generated by the proposed method.Results show that the fingerprinting errors will not increase linearly according to database (DB) errors in smartphone-based WiFi fingerprinting applications.

ABSTRACT
This paper presents a method that trains the WiFi fingerprint database using sensor-based navigation solutions. Since micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors provide only a short-term accuracy but suffer from the accuracy degradation with time, we restrict the time length of available indoor navigation trajectories, and conduct post-processing to improve the sensor-based navigation solution. Different middle-term navigation trajectories that move in and out of an indoor area are combined to make up the database. Furthermore, we evaluate the effect of WiFi database shifts on WiFi fingerprinting using the database generated by the proposed method. Results show that the fingerprinting errors will not increase linearly according to database (DB) errors in smartphone-based WiFi fingerprinting applications.

Mentions: Some part of the WiFi positioning results shifted to the north in Figure 18a because of the shifts in the proposed DB. Figure 19 a,b show the WiFi positioning errors on the navigation trajectory, where the x- and y-axis indicate the length of the trajectory in the west-east and south-north directions, and the z-axis is the positioning error distances.
