English abstract:
The earth´s magnetic field needs no transmitter infrastructure and can be measured everywhere. Therefore its use in fingerprinting technology for indoor-positioning and navigation seems to be useful. In this work the magnetic field is used in combination with Wi-Fi and RFID in the fingerprinting approach. The idea is to first calculate an approximate solution with Wi-Fi and then refine it with the magnetic field. Additionally RFID can also be used in this approach to further refine the approximate solution from Wi-Fi. To analyze the achievable accuracies static and kinematic test measurements are done. In the static test measurements the positions are calculated by using different sensors (Smartphone and low-cost IMU), different distance criteria and different signal sources. The smallest positioning errors (about 2m) occur by using all signal sources (magnetic field, Wi-Fi, RFID) and the Mahalanobisdistance. At the kinematic test measurements a Kalman Filter is used. A motion model delivers values for the system equation and the observations are retrieved by using magnetic field- and Wi-Fi-Fingerprinting. The kinematic positioning errors do not exceed 6m.
