Triangulation for indoor navigation

Estimote is hesitant to disclose their indoor navigation algorithm, but from the looks of it, a triangulation algorithm makes the most sense. In this chapter, we will learn how a triangulation algorithm can be used for indoor navigation. The topic is necessary because if you know the theory behind the working model of indoor navigation, you can come up with your own implementation of the algorithm and build your very own Bluetooth system. 

According to Estimote, indoor location is based on beacons and advanced data science for establishing the position of users and objects. 

Triangulation is a concept of trigonometry and geometry. It is a process of estimating the location of a point by forming triangles ...
