AWZone: Ad hoc WiFi Zonification in Post-Disaster Settings

Taslim Arefin Khan, Tusher Chakraborty, A. B. M. Alim Al Islam
Localization in disaster affected setting is a challenging problem. This is due to the nature of the environment and a large of unknowns. WiFi indoor localization is a common approach. However, existing literature is yet to address the problem of indoor localization in disaster setting. We propose AWZone, an ad hoc WiFi zonification technique. Using real experiments, our study reveals that AWZone can identify the zone accurately in most cases, eliminating incorrect zones from a set of possible results.
