One of our daily issues for searching indoor lost item remain unresolved until today as there is no any systematic way of locating it. Unaccounted amount of time and energy has been wasted each day trying to retrieve it based on memory. Therefore, in this project, a prototype is proposed to locate indoor lost item utilizing received signal strength (RSS) for distance estimation. The prototype primary consists of a small size tag for attaching on any item and a reader for computing the estimated location of the tag. A positioning algorithm is developed to analyse the behaviour of received signal strength and calculate the probability of the target location. As the nature of indoor environment varies across each location, the prototype is tested at multiple indoor locations for refining the algorithm and verifying its robustness and consistency in estimating the target location. The results obtained showed that the percentage of error for direction probability is 32 % and accuracy of distance is at 0.9m.
