An Offline Outdoor Navigation System with Full Privacy

Abstract

GPS navigation systems are a potential threat to user privacy in case of curious providers, espionage and many other aspects. Users tend to place blind trust into GPS applications without realizing the ease at which the GPS can be spoofed or their position compromised via either the hardware or software. Thus, when a high level of privacy assurance is required, the GPS should be completely switched off. This paper presents an efficient method, a smartphone-based alternative solution, for an outdoor offline navigation system, which works in the absence of GPS, wireless, and cellular signals. The proposed approach exploits the various digital and mathematical resources present to use DEM data and sensor data to minimize errors in the calculated position data.
