Abstract

This works illustrates the LAURA system, which performs localization, tracking and monitoring of patients hosted at nursing institutes by exploiting a wireless sensor network based on the IEEE 801.15.4 (Zigbee) standard. We focus on the indoor personal localization module, which leverages a method based on received signal strength measurements, together with a particle filter to perform tracking of moving patients. We discuss the implementation and dimensioning of the localization and tracking system using commercial hardware, and we test the LAURA system in real environment, both with static and moving patients, achieving an average localization error lower than 2 m in 80% of the cases. The data sets containing the real measurements of received signal strengths collected during the experiments are made publicly available to enable reproducible research.
