    Indoor tracking is a new research area, which is not yet fully solved. All current indoor tracking systems are either expensive or not accurate enough. In this project, a new affordable indoor tracking system was proposed and implemented for an office room. Through-out the research, a large scale experiment was conducted to verify the stability and the reliability of the system. It was observed that the Bluetooth signal is very stable with typical features of a radio wave signal, and is reliable to be implemented into an indoor positioning system. The fingerprinting method was employed to manipulate the Bluetooth signal at many positions in the office room. In addition, a robot was created to perform the complex and time-consuming data collection process. The system has the benefit of affordable Bluetooth technology and the accuracy of robotics.
