Abstract

In this paper, by utilizing the iBeacon is BLE (BlueTooth Low Energy) protocol devices that are supported by over the Bluetooth 4.0, and have implemented a system to improve the accuracy in the system for measuring the position of the user. After measuring through the system according to the state of the iBeacon, the interference factors are analyzed through analysis of the collected data, and applying the extended Kalman filter for calibration. Compared with the data after applying a filter with existing data, it was confirmed an increase in accuracy. Improvement techniques for providing the less complexity to the actual implementation, is effective in improving the accuracy of vulnerable services basic iBeacon.
