(This article belongs to the Special Issue Indoor Localization: Technologies and Challenges)
This paper presents our experience on a real case of applying an indoor localization system for monitoring older adults in their own homes. Since the system is designed to be used by real users, there are many situations that cannot be controlled by system developers and can be a source of errors. This paper presents some of the problems that arise when real non-expert users use localization systems and discusses some strategies to deal with such situations. Two technologies were tested to provide indoor localization: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy. The results shown in the paper suggest that the Bluetooth Low Energy based one is preferable in the proposed task. View Full-Text
