9780470943427: Handbook of Position Location: Theory, Practice and Advances

Radio systems capable of localization have emerging applications in homeland security, law enforcement, emergency response, defense command and control, multi-robot coordination and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian collision avoidance. In fact, high resolution localization is vital for many applications, including: traffic alert, emergency services, e.g., indoor localization for firefighters, and battlefield command and control. These systems promise to dramatically reduce society's vulnerabilities to catastrophic events and improve its quality of of life.

While work this important area is progressing, limited resources are available to support graduate students and researchers in this important area. Specifically, a limited number of books has been published in this area covering selected subjects. This comprehensive handbook offers gaps of available localization books presenting in-depth coverage from fundamentals of coordinates to advanced application examples.

From the Back Cover:

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 feature 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.
