Abstract

The SIMPLE (Simple Indoor Multi-level Portable Location
Engine) wireless location prototype runs on an IPAQ PDA
equipped with an 802.11b wireless LAN interface and
provides a handheld location system in conjunction with a
number of access points. The system has been particularly
developed to work within a museum or heritage scenario
that spans multiple locations and may enable metropolitan
wide location services. SIMPLE enables a wireless enabled
PDA or in the future a cellular phone with WLAN
functionality to download a wireless database and map and
determine their location based on received signal strength
indicator (RSSI) information. A number of techniques have
been combined within SIMPLE to enable the PDA to
function as an autonomous device with minimal interaction
to the service provider infrastructure. This should enable
more scalable middleware solutions to be created, where
users only interact when requesting delivery of information.
