This project is designed as a Proof Of Concept Universal App to get the approximate distance from a WiFi access point.

Currently it:

  • Lists the Access Points in the area together with their Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI)
  • Estimates the distance based on this formula: d = 10 ^ ((TxPower - RSSI) / (10 * n))

Where:

  • TxPower is the RSSI measured at 1m from a known AP.
  • n is the propagation constant or path-loss exponent. For example: 2.7 to 4.3 (Free space has n =2 for reference).
  • RSSI is the measured RSSI
  • d is the distance in meter
You can’t perform that action at this time.
