The museum it needs to have awifi connection. Every room andevery hallway should be providedwith an access point.We can track the user trough thecurrently associated access point.Making AP signal weak we can besure that the user can have onlyone access point per room.The app will ask to the server inwhich room it appears to be, andthe server will know which room isassociated to that specific accesspoint.Wifi localizationto navigate the museumwith the indoor mapIndoor navigationProject: Rome Open Museum Team: Fish in the City
