With the increasing demand of Internet-of-Things applicability in various devices and location-based services (LBSs) with positioning capabilities, we proposed simple and effective post-processing techniques to reduce positioning error and provide more precise navigation to users in a pedestrian environment in this letter. The proposed positioning error reduction techniques (Technique 1-minimum range securement and bounce elimination, Technique 2-direction vector-based error correction) were studied considering low complexity and wide applicability to various types of positioning systems, e.g., global positioning system (GPS). Through the real field tests in urban areas, we have verified that an average positioning error of the proposed techniques is significantly decreased compared to that of a GPS-only environment.
