Indoors Mapping Using WiFi Routers

Team Members: R Kailash, Thanga Manickam M, T Sai Chandra Mouli, Sai Phani P Problem Statement: Navigating unknown and unmapped terrain used to be very difficult. With the advent of satellite imagery and technologies likeGoogle Maps - virtually mapping all of the earth - navigation through areas that are photographed is now very easy. However, a slight problem still exists. Satellite imagery can and will identify buildings but cannot map their interiors. This is a problem as most of the general public find themselves in situations where they need to find our way through large buildings and without a provided map, they are clueless. If the building/infrastructure were aerially open, then they can use SatNav in the area to navigate. However, if the building is not aerially open, and say we need to find the office of a particular person in a huge building, then we are helpless. Instead of statically mapping the infrastructure and giving out hand-out maps, it is much better if we can dynamically figure out where we are as we move along.

Heavy traffic in Cities is one of the major reasons behind reaching hospitals on time. Lack of proper knowledge in drivers about the traffic conditions on roads¬† leads to them being struck in heavy traffics. User Persona: Patients: Person, stuck by an accident, need immediate emergency care, no near-by hospitals, need ambulance service. Ambulances: Waiting for emergency cases, no accurate location details, no prior traffic updates. Interview: No Yes My friend's family who had a major accident in the city outskirts were delayed treatment because there was no proper ambulance service in the area. By the time the ambulance driver reached the spot, there was loss of life. Better traffic conditions(favorable to ambulances) would have helped the driver to reach the spot quicker User Journeys: We came up on this idea after seeing a practical issue where this idea might have helped the case we observed.…
