Abstract: In recent years,with an increasing demand of context-aware applications and ambient intelligence applications,the accuracy requirements of user location information are rising.Due to the fact of complex indoor environment and the loss of unified infrastructure,indoor positioning technology has gradually become the focus field of user localization.Taking into account the infrastructure of indoor positioning technology,location accuracy,generality and other factors,the existing methods were divided into three categories:specific device-based localization,WIFI-based localization and mobile sensor-based localization.We discussed and analyzed specific localization technology and different me-thods,such as performance,features,advantages and disadvantages,etc.Finally,we summarized the current state of indoor localization technology field,and briefly described the direction of future research and development trends in the field.

Key words: Location information,Indoor localization,WIFI,Mobile sensor
