Abstract: Nowadays, wireless indoor positioning systems have become very familiar, and widespread all over the world. They are successfully used in many applications including tracking objects e.g. Firemen who usually face life-threatening situations. Indoor positioning systems become critically convenient in such scenarios. This paper deals with the tracking of a group of firemen during their mission in order to have a real-time visibility of their coordinates. These firemen are armed by smart sensors and are, at the same time, active in a smart environment containing referenced nodes. This paper will propose two approaches: ‘Centralized Emission’, and ‘Broadcast Emission’ and will describe the proposed method to calculate the firemen’s coordinates.
