Abstract [en]

This paper presents an evaluation of Bluetooth positioning in a general positioning platform. Proceeding the evaluation a Bluetooth based positioning system was implemented in order to complement the theoretical evaluation with empirical tests. Three different ways of positioning with Bluetooth have been developed. With a registered positioning service a Bluetooth device has an active role in the positioning task as it sends a position on request. A Bluetooth device can also take a more passive role in a positioning task, where the unique address of the device is used by a connected device to look up respective position in a database. It is also possible to forward a position gained from the positioning platform using the peer to peer characteristics in Bluetooth. This paper does also contain a discussion on the theoretical time requirements for a positioning system based on Bluetooth. Empirical tests show that these requirements hold.
