    In the past when designing indoor user localization and navigation systems we were confronted with the problem of unburdening our users from needing additional hardware to use said systems. Almost every design put on paper required that a user have a specialized dedicated hardware. This however is no longer the case today due to massive popularity of smart phones and user handheld devices such as tablets, smart watches and netbooks. The hardware of which offers us multiple interesting and unconventional ways of designing systems for user localization and navigation. It was the goal of this thesis to develop a simple system for indoor user localization and navigation which would allow further integration with already existing services on this field. In the introductory chapters we take a look at basic localization methods, ways of implementation regardless of technology, technologies available to us and existing solutions currently on market. Followed by an in-depth look at the structure and workings of components which form the developed solution and how said solution tackles common problems encountered with localization methods and systems. Finally we take a look at additional components being developed and usage analysis.
