Geometric and Signal Strength Dilution of Precision (DoP) Wi-Fi

By Soumaya Zirari, Philippe Canalda and François Spies


The democratization of wireless networks combined to the emergence of mobile devices increasingly autonomous and efficient lead to new services. Positioning services become overcrowded. Accuracy is the main quality criteria in positioning. But to better appreciate this one a coefficient is needed. In this paper we present Geometric and Signal Strength Dilution of Precision (DOP) for positioning systems based on Wi-Fi and Signal Strength measurements
