With the fast growing demand of location-based services in indoor environments, indoor positioning based on fingerprinting has attracted considerable interest due to its high accuracy. In this talk, we present our recent work on using deep learning for fingerprinting based indoor localization where Channel State Information (CSI), such as amplitude and phase difference information, are exploited for location estimation. Specifically, we present the design of ResLoc, which employs bi-modal CSI tensor data to train a deep residual sharing learning network. We then present DeepMap, a deep Gaussian process based approach for indoor radio map construction and location estimation, aiming to greatly reduce the training burden. Experimental results are presented to confirm that with deep learning and CSI, the proposed system can effectively reduce location error compared with existing methods in representative indoor environments.
