Travel can be an enjoyable experience but it can also be stressful when one is unable to get to the destination in timely manner. Satellite navigation systems (satnav) such as the ubiquitous Global Positioning System (GPS) provide an aid to locating unfamiliar places without hassle. However, the effectiveness of satnav stops at the doorstep of the building due to its requirement for line of sight with orbiting satellites. Within a large complex building, navigation typically relies on building signage, information from kiosks and getting assistance from information desks. The advancement of mobile devices and wireless technology offer an interesting proposition for the development of indoor positioning systems. In this paper, we propose a passive indoor positioning system to provide navigational aid and discuss findings from our pilot experiment using NFC technology.
