—In this correspondence, we reply to the comments in Gu et al. [ " Comments on 'A blind signal separation method for multiuser communications,' " We explain that the global convergence analysis of the method in Castedo et al. [ " A blind signal separation method for multiuser communications, " IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing,] can be completed as an(More)
This paper deals with the problem of blind interference suppression in Direct-Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS/CDMA) channels. We investigate the incorporation of linear constraints to the Constant Modulus (CM) criterion to obtain a new blind adaptive receiver that only requires chip synchronization and acquisition of the desired user code. An(More)
The problem of blind channel identiication for Direct-Sequence/Code-Division Multiple-Access (DS/CDMA) multiuser systems is explored. For wideband DS/CDMA signals, multipath distortion is well modeled by a a nite-impulse response model. In this work, a blind channel identiication technique based on second order statistics is investigated. The method(More)
— Positioning systems based on sensor networks is one of the most promising ſelds in mobile computing. This paper considers the bluetooth standard to locate devices using the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator). The major problem of working with this parameter is its ƀuctuation that happens very fast due to changes in the environment. These changes(More)

In this paper we address the problem of indoor tracking using received signal strength (RSS) as a positiondependent data measurement. This type of measurements are very appealing because they can be easily obtained with a variety of wireless technologies which are relatively inexpensive. The extraction of accurate location information from RSS in indoor(More)
Finite length CMA equalizers contain undesired minima termed Length Dependent Local Minima (LDLM). We note that for auto-regressive (AR) channels, the equalizer output is correlated with a delayed input at these minima. This property is then used to modify the CMA cost function and remove the LDLM in AR channels. Permission to publish this abstract(More)
The growth of wireless and mobile communications technologies offers new possibilities for context driven information systems. Specifically, nowadays, mobile phones are equipped with several radio-frequency technologies, like Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM),WiFi or Bluetooth. In this way, the idea of using them to create a location system(More)
