Main Article Content
In this research, system development for creating indoor floor plans based on the actual walking route of a person using an Android application on a smartphone working with a PC-based application on a PC has been proposed. Via a smartphone, the Android application is used for capturing indoor video and also obtaining various movement data from many types of mobile sensors e.g. accelerometer, gyroscope, etc., however, except for GPS due to the possibility of signal blocking and insufficient accuracy for the indoor purpose. Then all the collected data are sent to the PC to analyze and process using the PC-Based application to detect the edge between the floor and the wall from video and merge into a consolidated floor plan. In addition, the collected movement data is calculated and estimate the actual walking distance used for adjusting scale to correspond with the actual floor plan, which the complete floor plan of actual walking route is finally generated.
