The multiple user challenge is one of the issues that need to be addressed in order to facilitate the adoption of intelligent environments in everyday activities. The development of multi-user capabilities in smart homes is closely related to the creation of effective indoor positioning systems. This research work reports on the development and evaluation of an indoor positioning system that allows multi-user management in a smart home environment. The design of the BLE based system is presented, as well as its implementation and evaluation in the Smart Spaces Lab at Middlesex University. The validation of the system is shown as a case study in which it is used to develop multi-user capabilities in two context-aware systems of the laboratory. Video demonstrations are provided to illustrate the multi-user capabilities that were developed in the validation.
