Recently, indoor localization has witnessed an increase in interest,
due to the potential wide range of using in different applications, such as
Internet of Things (IoT). It is also providing a solution for the absence of Global
Positioning System (GPS) signals inside buildings. Different techniques have
been used for performing the indoor localization, such as sensors and wireless
technologies. In this paper, an indoor localization and object tracking system is
proposed based on WiFi transmission technique. It is done by distributing
different WiFi sources around the building to read the data of the tracked
objects. This is to measure the distance between the WiFi receiver and the
object to allocate and track it efficiently. The test results show that the proposed
system is working in an efficient way with low cost.
