Indoor positioning gained popularity recently due to its potential to be used in the increasing complexity of indoor environment. Unfortunately GPS signals are restricted from indoor purposes. The main objective of this work is to design a new method to develop indoor positioning navigation system without using wireless technology through image processing. Apart from that, the work aims to develop an interactive indoor navigation system. Augmented reality is being used to superimpose the directional signage on the real view of the indoor environment in 3D form. Along with the 3D guides, voice guidance will be output from the system to assist users in identifying their locations easily. Overall scope of study mainly revolves the research on augmented reality, audio API, and other additional techniques that could improve the program in computing the route. The idea of this work could be broadly applied to mobile devices such as mobile hand phones and PDA as added indoor navigation functionality without using GPS and wireless communication. To date, the system has been tested at ground floor in Information Resource Centre (IRC) and the results show the flexibility of the system in navigating 12 locations and handling up to 30 possible routes
