    Bayesian filtering for indoor localization and tracking in wireless sensor networks

    In this article, we investigate experimentally the suitability of several Bayesian filtering techniques for the problem of tracking a moving device by a set of wireless sensor nodes in indoor environments. In ...

    Discrete fourier transform-based TOA estimation in UWB systems

    In this paper, we propose two time of arrival estimators for ultra wideband signals based on the phase difference between the discrete Fourier transforms (DFT) of the transmitted and received signals. The firs...

    Joint communication and positioning based on soft channel parameter estimation

    A joint communication and positioning system based on maximum-likelihood channel parameter estimation is proposed. The parameters of the physical channel, needed for positioning, and the channel coefficients o...

    Wireless network positioning as a convex feasibility problem

    In this semi-tutorial paper, the positioning problem is formulated as a convex feasibility problem (CFP). To solve the CFP for non-cooperative networks, we consider the well-known projection onto convex sets (...

    Correlation-based radio localization in an indoor environment

    We investigate the feasibility of using correlation-based methods for estimating the spatial location of distributed receiving nodes in an indoor environment. Our algorithms do not assume any knowledge regardi...

    Localization of acoustic sources using a decentralized particle filter

    This paper addresses the decentralized localization of an acoustic source in a (wireless) sensor network based on the underlying partial differential equation (PDE). The PDE is transformed into a distributed s...

    Indoor localization based on cellular telephony RSSI fingerprints containing very large numbers of carriers

    A new approach to indoor localization is presented, based upon the use of Received Signal Strength (RSS) fingerprints containing data from very large numbers of cellular base stations--up to the entire GSM ban...

    A human motion model based on maps for navigation systems

    Foot-mounted indoor positioning systems work remarkably well when using additionally the knowledge of floor-plans in the localization algorithm. Walls and other structures naturally restrict the motion of pede...

    Automated linear regression tools improve RSSI WSN localization in multipath indoor environment

    Received signal strength indication (RSSI)-based localization is emerging in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Localization algorithms need to include the physical and hardware limitations of RSSI measurements ...
