This is a demo of Wi-Fi fingerprint localization and SLAM autonomous navigation.

WiFi fingerprinting can be used in GPS-denied area (e.g., indoor environment) to estimate the position of targets with low cost and high accuracy. It can also assist autonomous driving (e.g., estimating the position of the autonomous vehicles or assisting the vehicles to decide the destination).

In this demo, one Kobuki acts as a thief and another Kobuki acts as a police. The infrastructure collects the thief’s Wi-Fi RSSI and send them to the police. The police estimates thief’s location by Wi-Fi fingerprint localization algorithm, and automatically goes to catch him by using SLAM navigation.
