An Outdoor navigation system that depends on Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites are utilized by many individuals consistently. Lamentably, this sort of advances must be utilized to explore in open spaces and are not accessible indoor. To fill this need, we propose a simple and savvy framework to encourage precise indoor navigation system. By exploiting the Bluetooth low energy beacons and the sensors incorporated into a smartphone, a basic yet useful application can be created. This Indoor Navigation System uses fingerprinting, augmented reality (AR), and digital compass advances in an incorporated Android-based application. In particular, we utilized a fingerprinting strategy to decide client position, augmented reality to show continuous route, and a compass to determine the direction towards the destination.
