This paper describes the design and realization of a Magnetic Indoor Positioning System. The system is entirely realized using off-the-shelf components and is based on inductive coupling between resonating coils. Both system-level architecture and realization details are described along with experimental results. The realized system exhibits a maximum positioning error of less than 10 cm in an indoor environment over a 3×3 m2 area. Extensive experiments in larger areas, in non-line-of-sight conditions, and in unfavorable geometric configurations, show sub-meter accuracy, thus validating the robustness of the system with respect to other existing solutions.
