Inomhusnavigering med iPhone (Swedish)
Indoor navigation could be used in many applications to enhance performance in its specific area. Anything from serious life critical tasks like aiding firefighters or coordinating military attacks to more simple every day use like finding a desired shop in a large supermarket could be considered. Smartphones of today introduce an interesting platform with capabilities like existing, more clumsy, indoor navigation systems. The iPhone 3GS is a powerful smartphone that lets the programmer use its hardware in an efficient and easy way. The iPhone 3GS has a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis magnetometer and hardware accelerated image rendering which is used in this thesis to track the user on an indoor map. A particle filter is used to track the position of the user. The implementation shows how many particles the iPhone will be able to handle and update in real time without lag in the application.
