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.
