Abstract: Smartphone plays a key role in integrating the entire world into a small hand. This feature made these smartphones as another human organ of many people. One of the main feature in every smart phone is GPS which used to travel new places, to locate and find optimized way to reach their destination. As we aware GPS is an outdoor application, GPS location is not accurate in indoor and small scale areas. This leads to an advanced research to improve the accuracy in GPS positing for the benefit of indoor applications. This research proposes a new iBeacons based Improved Indoor Positioning System for indoor positing application using Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons. This model helps the mobile application to find the exact location at micro-level scale. The objective of this research work is to design a potable indoor positing system (IPS) for indoor applications with at least 100m accuracy with in the inbuilt energy resource limitations. The proposed model has been built and verified in all the aspects. The location accuracy and energy efficiency of the proposed model is compared and found better than the existing models.
