Location based services have been made very popular by the recent generations of mobile devices that have become available. However, location information is not always available. For example, when the users are inside a building conventional positioning systems, like the GPS, are rendered useless. In this smalltalk I will present an adaptive algorithm for the detection of the indoor position of the users. This algorithm detects when the user is walking and the direction he/she is moving to infer the displacement done. Furthermore, we use information when the user is outdoors to calibrate the algorithm parameters to a specific user and the way he/she is currently moving.
