Abstract: Although location based applications have been gaining popularity, most positioning devices do not work when in an indoor environment, hindering the development of both mixed and indoor location based applications. In this paper we present a point of interest aware application that shows information to the user that is dependent on his indoor location. To be able to detect the user’s position, we propose a technique, based on the detection of footsteps, and the direction in which they were taken, to be able to calculate the position of the user inside a building. To improve the accuracy of the system, we use information about the buildings floor plan to create a graph that can be used to correct invalid movements.
