Nowadays the demand for an indoor positioning system appears at more and more places. Location-specific services, personalized shop windows, smart home lighting, self-parking cars, these are just a fraction of the use cases, where this technology can be applied.

The development of Industry 4.0 also requires the factories to have such a system. In order to make the autonomous robots able to avoid crashing into each other, a positioning system is required. In the logistics, an increasing problem appears in the efficiency, but with the aid of a positioning system, we can monitor the product moving processes and thereby be able to optimize them.

In this thesis, I present a positioning system and its development that can track the location of a device in a room. The development is for the Systems and Control Lab of the Institute for Computer Science and Control, a research institute that is part of the Hungaryian Academy of Sciences. The goal is to create a platform where quadcopter controlling algorithms can be tested; a reliable positioning system is essential for this purpose.
