Abstract: How to ensure an efficient medical personnel and equipment management within a hospital and help patients specially in emergency medical conditions. This paper presents a Wi-Fi based indoor positioning system for hospitals. It firstly presents the proposed indoor positioning procedure, analyses the advantages of Wi-Fi compared to the common positioning technologies; then designs the server-based indoor positioning system for hospitals. Finally, fingerprinting algorithm is used to position in real time. Shown as result of the conceived system tests, indoor positioning within hospitals can be realized.
