Implementing and evaluating a WiFi Direction Finder

Accurate and inexpensive indoor localization is required in many applications, such as tracking objects in a warehouse. State-of-the-art wireless technologies which are typically used for indoor localization, such as BLE and UWB, now support angleof-arrival capabilities. This feature is also possible using the protocol IEEE 802.11n (WiFi), which requires receivers with multiple antennas. Your job is to implement and evaluate a WiFi direction finder.
