Summary and Info
"The most comprehensive reference on wireless localization technology, featuring theory, current practice, and application examples. This authoritative handbook reviews both classic and emerging position location techniques, presenting unique, in-depth coverage from fundamentals of coordinates to advanced application examples. Featuring contributions from dozens of researchers from around the world, it provides the breadth of knowledge needed for readers who need to get up to speed in the fundamentals of wireless localization or who are involved in its emerging applications in such key areas as homeland security, law enforcement, emergency response, defense command and control, and multi-robot coordination. This invaluable handbook is comprised of seven parts: Part I reviews the basic techniques and research topics in position localization; Part II details TOA and DOA localization methods, introducing important measures that compare different estimation techniques; Part III studies the fundamentals of received signal strength-based positioning methods and their potential for indoor localization; Part IV examines non-line-of-sight identification, mitigation, and localization methods, highlighting many novel techniques; Part V reviews mobility and tracking using Kalman Filtering techniques, including their application in indoor localization and GNSS systems; Part VI covers several topics in the area of network-based or cooperative localization, introducing techniques such as infrastructure-free local and wireless local positioning systems; Part VII includes several novel applications of position location systems, offering many techniques and methods including GNSS and RFID-based localization systems and wireless local positioning systems. Many chapters feat ure useful MATLAB examples and their solutions; the examples have been designed to help readers learn fundamental algorithms for positioning and to begin their research more quickly. All MATLAB code is available online for download at: ftp://ftp.wiley.com/public/sci_tech_med/matlab_codes . Handbook of Position Location allows any working engineer or graduate student to quickly come up to speed in these systems. It also helps university professors teach the fundamentals of wireless localization."--Publisher's description. Read more... Content: Part I.
