Abstract

ABSTRACT Bluetooth is a short-range wireless communication technology, designed as a method of cable replacement between devices. Bluetooth technology is being applied to large number of devices, including mobile telephones, personal digital assistant, portable computers and various entertainment equipments. All the mention devices and the technology can be strongly related to building a location aware system. Most of the current location aware system requires bulky, costly and proprietary devices. Some are not providing accurate location information which defeats the purpose of a location aware system. The primary goal of the study is the development and prototypical implementation of an inexpensive and accurate location aware system that support automated acquisition of location and proximity information at application level. There is no current location aware system that uses the Bluetooth open source stack protocol technology which provides location information to within a centimeter. This dissertation is to use Bluetooth technology to develop an accurate and inexpensive location aware system and describes the methods to capture the signal strength information using open source Bluetooth stacks which can be widely integrated with current Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth adapters are used as agents to constantly scan the Bluetooth devices and capture the signal strength information to update the database. Bluetooth technology can accurately locate a device in a location by using multiple broadcasting stations to triangulate its position. Finally an inexpensive and accurate location aware system is developed compared with proprietary location aware system which is currently available in the market. ABSTRAK Bluetooth adalah teknologi komunikasi wayarles jarak dekat, direka untuk menghubungkan antara peranti mudah alif untuk mengganti wayar. Teknologi Bluetooth telah digunapakai secara meluas seperti telefon bimbit, alat pembantu peribadi (PDA), komputer riba dan pelbagai lagi. Semua peranti diatas adalah sangat rapat untuk dikaitkan dengan satu sistem untuk mengesan kedudukan. Kebanyakkan sistem mengesan kedudukan yang sedia ada sekarang adalah besar dan mahal. Sesetengah daripadanya juga tidak menyediakan maklumat yang tepat dimana ia telah lari dari tujuan utamanya. Matlamat utama pengajian ini adalah pelaksanaan pembangunan dan prototipikal sistem lokasi yang murah dan tepat sedar kedudukan yang menyokong pengambilalihan automatik dan maklumat kedekatan di tahap aplikasi. Tidak ada sistem lokasi yang menggunakan sumber teknologi Bluetooth open stack protokol yang menyediakan maklumat lokasi ke dalam sentimeter. Disertasi ini menggunakan teknologi Bluetooth open stack protocol untuk membangunkan sistem lokasi yang berkos murah dan menawarkan matlumat automatik yang tepat dengan menangkap kekuatan isyarat yang sedia ada di peranti mudah alih sekarang. Buat masa ini, masih tidak ada sistem seumpama itu yang menggunakan teknologi protokol Bluetooth untuk menyediakan maklumat kedudukan. Pengesan Bluetooth dijadikan sebagai agen untuk menyesan peranti Bluetooth dan menyimpan maklumat kedudukan didalam database. Teknologi Bluetooth ini boleh mengesan secara tepat peranti didalam satu lokasi dengan menggunakan beberapa stesen pemancar. Akhirnya, satu sistem yang berkos rendah tetapi menyediakan maklumat lokasi yang tepat dicipta untuk menggantikan sistem sedia ada yang besar dan mahal.
