Keywords: Sparklan antenna, indoor positioning

In this paper, the study of a Sparklan antenna used for indoor positioning (IP) is presented. The completed sensing hardware infrastructure is composed of six Sparklan AX-106M antennas and one Zigbee module. An indoor area with a size of 64 m2 in the building of Sue-Te University is used as the experimental field and a database including 704 sensed points with six received signal strength (RSS) signals is firstly constructed as the reference object locations. The RSSs of six antennas are used for object positioning estimation using a fuzzy estimator. To demonstrate the superiority of the developed IP system (IPS), several experiments were conducted. Experimental results show that the positioning performance of the IPS we developed is still accurate even when some antennas are disabled.
