The fingerprint-based approach for positioning in WLAN has been drawing great attention these days. However, the approach usually requires tremendous time and efforts to collect location fingerprints for the target area. In this paper, we propose an interpolation method based on Voronoi tessellation to significantly reduce such calibration efforts and to improve accuracy. Unlike other interpolation methods, our method refines the propagation model for each cell of the target area tessellated by a higher-order Voronoi diagram. Consequently, our method can take into account the signal fading caused by walls and obstacles more accurately. The proposed method significantly outperformed other interpolation methods in accuracy.
