Mobile Positioning using Wireless Networks: Possibilities and Fundamental Limitations based on Available Wireless Network Measurements
2005 (English)In: IEEE signal processing magazine (Print), ISSN 1053-5888, E-ISSN 1558-0792, Vol. 22, no 4, 41-53 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Location in wireless networks is of increasing importance for safety, gaming, and commercial services. There are plenty of measurements available today, ranging from signal arrival times to maps of received power. It is demonstrated how fundamental the Fisher information matrix (FIM) for each measurement is to assess possible location performance. As one illustration, the FCC positioning requirements are transformed to requirements on sufficient information. Thus, it is possible to investigate whether specific sensor configurations would provide acceptable accuracy.
