PerfLoc (Part 2): Performance Evaluation of the Smartphone Indoor Localization Apps
Nader Moayeri, Chang Li, Lu Shi
This paper describes the structure of the PerfLoc Prize Competition organized by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Competition consisted of collecting an extensive repository of smartphone data, releasing the data to researchers across the world to develop smartphone indoor localization algorithms, allowing them to evaluate the performance of their algorithms using a NIST web portal, and rigorous, live testing of the Android apps implementing the best algorithms at NIST. The paper presents detailed performance analysis of the algorithms developed by the top 10 participants as well as the Android indoor localization app that won the first prize in PerfLoc. It also provides a comparison of PerfLoc with other ongoing, annual indoor localization competitions.
