A generic and lightweight service for indoor and outdoor detection is demonstrated that mainly uses three lightweight sensing resources, including light sensors, cell tower signals and magnetism sensors, to make ambient environment detection in a fast, accurate and efficient manner. In particular, we do not need to fingerprint the environment to acquire a priori knowledge. Thus the proposed system greatly benefits many location-based and context-ware applications.
