Typical WLAN based indoor positioning systems take the received signal strength (RSS) as the major information source. Due to the complicated indoor environment, the RSS measurements are hard to model and too noisy to achieve a satisfactory 3-D accuracy in multi-floor scenarios. To enhance the performance of WLAN positioning systems, extra information sources could be integrated. In this paper, a Bayesian framework is applied to fuse multi-information sources and estimate the spatial and time varying parameters simultaneously and adaptively. An application of this framework, which fuses pressure measurements, a topological building map with RSS measurements, and simultaneously estimates the pressure sensor bias, is investigated. Our experiments indicate that the localization performance is more accurate and robust by using our approach.
