This paper presents steganography techniques that were employed to avoid human perception of the added audio signals in an acoustic environment for indoor location purposes. In the context of audio forensics, indoor location can be used in connection with the detection of a crime. The validation of using the acoustic channel for data transmission over an almost imperceptible audio signal enables the possibility of a receiving processing mobile device (such as a smartphone) to localize itself absolutely by receiving and processing such signals from the infrastructure. Some possible applications will be presented demonstrating the utility of this technology. This paper will present the use of almost imperceptible audio signals to successfully transmit hidden information using a spread spectrum data-hiding technique or a music/speech cover signal and the echo hiding technique.
