Recently the use of received signal strength values from a wireless local area network has received significant research interest for indoor localization. This work investigates a Voronoi-based interpolation method to improve indoor localization performance. The region of interest is spanned by reference measurement locations, termed as anchors. The proposed method is shown to outperform well-known localization techniques such as the k-Nearest Neighbor (k-NN) and the Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) methods in terms of accuracy and precision. Our results show that for a 20 m x 20 m room the proposed scheme can achieve a location accuracy of 5.7 m with at most 5 anchors, whereas the IDW and k-NN techniques attain location accuracies of only 6.1 m and 6.5 m, respectively, under the same conditions. These performance gains are achieved while maintaining the same number of anchors in the system calibration phase for all the considered techniques.
