The Location of a person in a bounded area can be attained by Wi-Fi Positioning System (WPS). WPS is used to identify the person or object which is equipped with inside the human habitation area using radio waves collected by smart devices. The proposed system focuses to track an individual person in an environment. The location of the person can be achieved by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) transponders. The RFID trackers accomplish with the Unique Device Identification (UDI). The procedure is deployed using an RFID sensor based application which pinpoints the location of the personnel inside architectural frameworks. The position co-ordinates in the indoor area can be using the Wi-Fi technology. The mechanism is split into two sections - Data Collection and Position Identification. The data collection combines the location information acquired from the sensor technologies. The identification of an individual with RFID transponders which results in the tracking the person. The location information obtained from the sensors are without time constraints and is updated in the RFID readers and databases including the time when they read. Design and development of the application from connecting to the sensor devices, distance estimation between the sensor devices and the person, retrieval of the exact position information are deliberated. The mechanism of the finding location of a person is executed in with position estimation algorithm.
