Device-free localization of people and objects indoors not equipped with radios is playing a critical role in many emerging applications. This paper presents a novel channel state information (CSI) pre-processing scheme that enables accurate device-free localization indoors. The basic idea is simple: CSI is sensitive to a target's location and by modelling the CSI measurements of multiple wireless links as a set of power fading based equations, the target location can be determined. However, due to rich multipaths in indoor environment, the received signal strength (RSS) or even the fine-grained CSI can not be easily modelled. We observe that even in a rich multipath environment, not all subcarriers are equally affected by multipath reflections. Our preprocessing scheme tries to identify the subcarriers not affected by multipath. Thus, CSIs on the "clean" subcarriers can be modelled and utilized for accurate localization. Extensive experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed pre-processing scheme.
