The number of private vehicles is still increasing from year to year. In order to limit environmental damage, a proper way of dealing with this trend is the introduction of intelligent automotive infrastructure. Besides traffic management solutions, smart parking guidance systems are important for reducing unnecessary traffic. For this, a key prerequisite are sensor networks that provide information about the occupancy state of every single parking spot in the parking infrastructure of high traffic targets e.g. nearby an airport or shopping mall.


The Bluetooth 5.1 Core Specification brought Angle of Arrival (AoA) based Indoor Localization to the Bluetooth Standard. This dataset is the result of one of the first comprehensive studies of static Bluetooth AoA-based Indoor Localization in a real-world testbed using commercial off-the-shelf Bluetooth chipsets.

The positioning experiments were carried out on a 100 m² test area using four stationary Bluetooth sensor devices each equipped with eight antennas. With this setup, a median localization accuracy of up to 18 cm was achieved.
