This report details the development of an indoor navigation system on a web-enabled smartphone. Research of previous work in the field preceded the development of a new approach that uses data from the device's wireless adapter, accelerometer, and compass to determine user position. A routing algorithm calculates the optimal path from user position to destination. Testing verified that two meter accuracy, sufficient for navigation, was achieved. This technique shows promise for future handheld indoor navigation systems that can be used in malls, museums, hospitals, and college campuses.
