Determining the location of patients in remote rehabilitation by means of a wireless network
Keywords:Wi-Fi, MAC, wireless network, throughput, spatial flow, transport protocol
This article discusses the indoor object's location identification method that had been developed to use in medical facilities. Differently from other similar methods, the one reported in this paper requires access to Wi-Fi access points only and, most importantly, it does not require the mobile device to be in hotspot mode. It is proposed to use Wi-Fi access points (routers) with non-standard firmware as measuring equipment to determine the coordinates of the patient's location within the medical institution. Thus, it can be claimed that using of the proposed method will help to achieve acceptable accuracy in real environments at real-time identification mobile devices using simple hardware and software requirements.
