Abstract :

As people spend most of their time indoors the need for accurate localization systems has become essential forthe facilitation of user’s life. During the last years a large number of researchers have been struggling to deploy  innovative algorithms, systems and technologies that tackle localization for mobile nodes. These systems have to  leverage the available network infrastructure capabilities in order to estimate the desired position. However,  only few of those efforts reach the plateau of productivity and become commercially available. Hybrid techniques, crowdsourcing systems and integrated indoor-outdoor solutions have recently become popular and  are expected to drive the new era of the localization systems.
