This paper presents a novel 802.11-based positioning system called the Maximal Cluster Centered Positioning System (MCCPS) developed and demonstrated at National Central University. The MCCPS system locates mobile objects via collecting the sensed power strengths of the mobile objects to multiple wireless access points. To overcome the serious multipath fading problem in the indoor environment, several positions called reference points were selected and a database is introduced to maintenance the power signature of each reference point. The experimental results show that the location information provided by MCCPS assures high correctness of region classification and low distance error.
