WiFi Access Point Fingerprinting ?

Postby ginnox » Thu Feb 04, 2010 9:16 am

Hi guys,

I am stuck with the API and unable to figure out whether this is possible:

I wish to build an App doing WiFi fingerprint of buildings
i.e. For every location of user's choice the following info is saved in the database:

MAC of Access Point | Name of the Network | RSSI (wifi signal Strength) |

I had following questions:

1. Is It possible? I know there are apps out there (eg. G-Mon , Wifi Scanner etc) which do similar thing but I am not sure if they are able to discern- "more then one visible access points of a same network" .

2. If Yes , any help wid API usage (which class in "android.net.wifi" to use..)

Thanks in Advance.
