In 2023, there are various WiFi technologies and algorithms for an indoor positioning system. However, each technology and algorithm comes with their own strengths and weaknesses that may not universally benefit all building locations. Therefore, we propose a novel algorithm to dynamically switch to the most optimal positioning model at any given location, by utilising a Machine Learning based weighted model selection algorithm, with WiFi RSS and RTT signal measures as the input features. We evaluated our algorithm in three real-world indoor scenarios to demonstrate an improvement of up to 1.8 metres, compared to standard WiFi fingerprinting algorithm.
