Abstract

Switching estimated receiver position (SwERP) scheme is proved to be a promising solution for indoor positioning system, owing to its high achievable accuracy and consistency. The high positioning accuracy is achieved from sensitivity (R xS) limit, field-of-view (FOV) limit, and assisted azimuth and tilt information from 6-axis sensor. In this paper, we propose a physical simulation model that can predict the latter three factors. The conventional visible light communication (VLC) model uses only geometric optics (GO) to predict light propagation, which is not enough to define the FOV limit. Thus, we propose a novel method using rotation matrix with cone function and support vector machines (SVMs) to classify the boundary of FOV limit. Based on sensitivity and FOV limits, possible azimuth and tilt angulations are mathematically defined. Moreover, by including FOV limit into the simulation, transmitters and their mirrors that are outside FOV limit can be neglected, of which reduce at least 80% of computation during GO calculation.
