In this paper, opportunistic object binding is proposed to improve multi-modal localization. Object binding and proximity detection will be realized using Bluetooth and Wireless Sensor Networks. Multi-modal localization is created using an opportunistic seamless localization system, fusing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wireless Sensor Networks, GSM, GPS, RFID and inertial sensors. In this paper object binding is used to locate devices which can not be located without the help of bound objects.
