Localization is a key component for many AAL systems, since the user position can be used for detecting user's activities and activating devices. While for outdoor scenarios Global Positioning System (GPS) constitutes a reliable and easily available technology, in indoor scenarios, in particular in real homes, GPS is largely unavailable. For this reason, several systems have been proposed for indoor localization. Recently, several algorithms fuse information coming from different sources in order to improve the overall accuracy in monitoring user activities. In this paper we propose a Source-Agnostic Localization Technique, called SALT, that fuses the information (coordinates) provided by a localization system with the information coming from the binary sensor network deployed within the environment. In order to evaluate the proposed framework, we tested our solution by using a previous developed heterogeneous localization systems presented at the international competition EvAAL 2013.
