Dataset Open Access
This dataset was collected within the context of a research project aiming to develop an indoor positioning system for autonomous industrial vehicles. This positioning system is based on fusing data from Wi-Fi sensors, magnetic encoders, and an IMU, using a particle filter. Wi-Fi data is first processed using Wi-Fi fingerprinting.
One of the unique characteristics of this system is that it uses Wi-Fi fingerprints collected simultaneously from multiple, synchronised, Wi-Fi interfaces. Some results about the benefits of using multiple Wi-Fi interfaces are described in:

These data were collected at a university building that resembles an industrial floor plant, with a total area of around 1000 m2. The data were collected in July 2017.
The data collection setup was based on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B with its internal Wi-Fi interface, and four additional USB Wi-Fi interfaces (Edimax EW-7811un).
