Abstract

In last decade, expansion of mobile phones increased people's usage of these devices. In parallel with the increasing usage rate, the number of developed applications increased for mobile phones. Thanks to mobile phones, many different fields have been affected. However, the biggest contributions of mobile phones are orientation and location finder services. Although people spend major time of their life in indoor areas, usage of navigation systems must be outdoors since these systems get coordinate information from satellites. In indoor areas, walls, and any object in a building cause wrong results or block navigation systems. In this study, orientation and location finder services for indoor navigation will be done by using accelerometer, compass and camera that have been already included in the phones and augmented reality technology for iOS based mobile phones and locations will be provided thanks to beacon Bluetooth devices.
