—Indoor positioning and tracking systems have become enormous issue in location awareness computing due to its improvement of location detection and positioning identification. The locations are normally detected using position technologies such as Global Positioning System, radio frequency identification, Bluetooth Beacon, Wi-Fi fingerprinting, pedometer and so on. This research presents an indoor positioning system based on Bluetooth low energy 4.0 Beacons; we have implemented Bluetooth signal strength for tracking the specific location and detect the movement of user through Android application platform. Bluetooth low energy was addressed to be an experiment technique to set up into the real environment of interior the building. The signal strength of beacons is evaluated and measured the quality of accuracy as well as the improvement of provide raw data from Beacons to the system to get better performance of the direction map and precise distance from current location to desire’s positioning. A smartphone application detects the location-based Bluetooth signal strength accurately and can be achieved the destination by provided direction map and distance perfectly.
