Inspiration

I frequently forget where I parked my car and sometimes buildings can be to complicated to find your way.

What it does

This project provides a basic positioning of the person with respect to all the wifi available in the area.

How we built it

Just like google maps uses satellites to find the device location's, similarly this project uses wifi signals and computes the position of the device inside a building where GPS location is not easily acquired.

Challenges we ran into

The process of finding location using wifi is called triangulation. The concept basically requires minimum 3 wifi access points.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Implementing triangulation with machine learning, this provides more accurate data.

What we learned

Machine learning and Triangulation.

What's next for LocalHost

Will add live tracking without actually teaching data set. So it will continuously record and update new data and provide better position every time you use it.
