  • About this book

  • The first five chapters of the book focus on the theory of indoor geolocation systems
  • A full seven chapters examine the applications of indoor geolocation applications
  • Based on the IEEE Globecom Tutorial, also recorded by the IEEE ComSoc TutorialsNow™

The goal of this book is introduce and discuss indoor geolocation systems

—theory and applications for over 20 years. The first part of the book is dedicated to the theory of indoor geolocation systems, which consists of five chapters. In the first chapter, geolocation systems is introduced. In the second chapter, the state-of-the-art radio geolocation systems are classified. Illustrations include GPS and GLONASS. The third chapter deals with the issues of identity with the state-of-the-art indoor geolocation systems Giftet Inc., Locatalite, GPS repeaters, the Integrinautics pseudolite as to obtaining an observable or several observables for indoor geolocation. The fourth chapter consists of a detailed discussion on fixed and Doppler-based navigation algorithms suitable for indoor geolocaiton systems and advanced signal processing techniques for indoor geolocation receiver design, which includes Maximum Likelihood Receiver and Bayesian Monte Carlo Markov Chain. Chapter 5 (or the last chapter of part 1 or of the theory) discusses the indoor geolocaiton channel and proposes a mathematical model for the unified geolocation channel.
