The students from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore campus, along with Professor Dr. Vidhya Balasubramanian, won "Best Paper Runner-up Award" for their paper titled "A Dynamic Weighted Trilateration Algorithm for Indoor Localization using Dual-band WiFi" at the 17th International Symposium on Web & Wireless Geographical Information Systems, held at Kyoto, Japan, from May 16-17, 2019.

Mathivannan S., Srinath S., Shashank R., Aravindh R. worked on developing a calibration free WiFi based indoor localization algorithm under the mentorship of Dr. Vidhya Balasubramanian in the Amrita Multidimensional Data Analytics Lab (AMuDa). This algorithm makes indoor localization more practical and robust to implement with minimum infrastructure cost and computational overhead.

The student team was the only undergraduate team participating in the symposium.
