Summary Context: Many heuristics-based indoor positioning approaches havebeen developed to enhance positioning estimation. However, thereis no comprehensive survey of these heuristics information and methods. 

Objective: The main objective of this study is to providea holistic view and an in-depth analysis ofwhat heuristics informationand methods have been used, their general achievements andlimitations. This study aims to provide a comprehensive summary tofacilitate further research on indoor positioning heuristics. 

Method: We conducted a systematic literature review (SLR) on indoorpositioning heuristics. 

Results: Ninety-three (93) primary studies wereselected. We found two general types of heuristics informationand four primary heuristics methods, which we summarised in thispaper. We also found that many of these positioning heuristics aretested in experimental settings only. Some heuristics claim practicalapplications but are not tested for the challenging and typical indoorenvironments. 

Conclusion: Most existing heuristics information andmethods rely on the assumptions that may not be true in real life environment, hence limiting the usefulness of the positioning outcomes. Based on the analysis of this SLR, we propose two research directions to enhance positioning estimation.
