Wifi-Based Positioning System in building for Android

I am looking for someone that can code an app for android that can detect user location in a building by using wifi connection only as GPS would not work in a building.

First of all, my budget is Rm400-Rm500 only as I have spend Rm200 on a developer who promised me a full system but end up not responding to any of my emails/PM after phase 1 of the project is complete. i should pay the remaining payment for the 2nd phase.

My agreement is simple, i check the progress every 2 or 3 days, and you must reply. then you give my the app to test. I test and make sure everything i want is working. you give source codes, and i'll pay. you can see my tradelist i'm honest. and this is my final year project so i'm never going to run.

This app needs to be done by 22nd November 2012

My app is supposedly simple, in one app, there are 2 users which is Admin and User

These are the main point of the app;

1) Latitude/ Longitude of user must change upon movement, even by little must change to make this proof of concept happens.

2) Admin can save the lat/long info, add the name for it(eg Makmal / Lab / Bilik Kuliah including with the SSID used.

and just for addition for the table on the database, my lecturer wants the app to be able to automatically save the wifi SSID in the add function. like when the admin add the location, the app auto detect which Wifi SSID that is used, and saved alongside the lat/long/name.

It does not have to be completely accurate, just the latitude/longitude have even a slight changes in numbers its okay.

The complete project is like a research. It was originally need to do the user tracking like gps but since it is in building, need to use wifi as the only option as cell tower has less accurate. It is so hard so the scope is scaled down to just a proof of concept.

Using only 1 wifi ap, the user move in a straight line while the latitude/longitude changes and saved. if you could do wifi triangulation that would be very great.

The user can view their location only in their app whenever they request for the location, based on the saved location by the admin. So example the admin save lat/long of [url removed, login to view] as Software Lab. So the user will view their screen on the building map with a dot that says "you are here"

The building map in this case is a straight corridor only which consist of many rooms. So each room should have their specific lat/long. The admin save them as a name.

And btw the admin can also state what level is that room on.

Also, I have the source codes for previous work made by previous developers, he has done the server side and also php as middleman to communicate with the app. I have my own ftp and mysql server given by my lecturer to host the php and database information. Will give the details and files to whoever accepting my project. So if you wish to continue his work let me know, cuz already have the base and server side codes should be easier to get started.

let me know if you have any questions.
