Abstract

In this work, we present a scheme based on Bluetooth friendly device names to enable power-optimized ad-hoc localization of mobile devices. Eliminating the service discovery and connection (including potential pairing) phases in Bluetooth allows for speedier and more power-efficient conveying of location information using friendly device names. Furthermore, we observe that using the signal strength commonly provided in reference APIs of mobile OSs, client distances can be calculated with high accuracy and without additional power penalties.
