Title: "LED based Indoor Positioning: A Survey"
Abstract: LEDs are most likely to become the most widely used indoor lighting technology in future. In addition to providing numerous advantages over other lighting methods such as saving up to 85% and 50% of the energy consumed by incandescent and fluorescent lights respectively positioning involving LEDs is a relatively novel concept and may prove to be a better choice for indoor positioning since it also utilizes preinstalled LED ceiling lights (like Wi‐Fi based schemes) but provides better localization accuracy. This talk reviews the state of the art in LED based indoor positioning systems and proposes a framework for classifying such systems on the basis of two broad receiver categories: photodiodes and image sensors/cameras. It also highlights practical limitations and challenges for the future work in this area.
