Kalman Filter to smooth out beacon data


#1

We are determining proximity in a office space using proximity beacons. Our app runs in IOS and Andriod. We are using the ibeacon protocol. The readings from the beacon are not completely clean to be used in the trilateration algorithm. We are planning to use a Kalman Filter before passing data to the trilateration algorithm.

Does Estimote already have Kalman filters as part of the their SDK ?

Any help will be much appreciated

Thanks

We’re doing all kinds of signal processing in our Proximity and Indoor SDKs, but we can’t share the details. I’d say, just use our SDKs and save yourself a lot of time trying to implement it yourself (: [but obviously, a I’m a bit biased :wink:]
