    Chapter from the book: Sandrasegaran, K. 2013. Advances in Real-time Information Networks.


    Wi-Fi Positioning System (WPS) is a localization technology based on WLAN infrastructure and used the signal strength to implement position determination. With the widely used of Wi-Fi integrated smartphone, WPS has been introduced to monitor pedestrian movement such as movement trend and pedestrian traffic load. The information of pedestrian in a a street can be used to improve the services provides to people, for instance, a better bus time schedule and more friendly pavement design. Although there are lots of paper relate to WPS, but very little works has been published to discuss the system deployment. This paper provides modelling and simulation of WPS deployment in a street environment using MATLAB simulation tool. The results of the simulation ca be used to optimizing WPS device deployment to achieve better system coverage and efficiency.
