This paper presents an indoor positioning system based on FM radio. The system is built upon commercially available short-range FM transmitters. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first experimental study of FM performance for indoor localisation. FM radio possesses a number of features, which make it distinct from other localisation technologies. Despite the low cost and off-the-shelf components, our FM positioning system reaches a high performance, comparable to other positioning technologies, such as Wi-Fi for example. Our experiments have yielded a median accuracy of 1.0 m and in 95% of cases the error is below 5 m.
