Abstract: This paper proposes a new indoor positioning algorithm for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices, such as mobile phones and tablets. The algorithm integrates an Off-set triangulation algorithm and a multi-stage weighted framework. An off-set triangulation algorithm was used to provide a general method to locate the user’s position. Results are integrated into a weighted framework in order to increase the adaptability of the proposed localization algorithm to different complex environments and increase the accuracy of the localization. Three experiments in different environments have been examined in order to test the performance and the limitations of this algorithm. Results show that the proposed algorithm demonstrated strong adaptability to complex non-Line-of-Sight (LOS) environments.
