The position of a participant during an installation is a valuable data. One may want to start some sample when someone cross a line or stop the music automatically whenever there is nobody inside the main area. GPS is a good solution for localization, but it usually loses its capabilities inside buildings. This paper discuss the use of Wi-Fi signal strength during an installation as an alternative to GPS.
