—This paper presents a method of determining the statistical positional accuracy of a moving object being tracked by any 2D (but particularly radiolocation) positioning system without requiring a more accurate reference system. Commonly for testing performance only static positional errors are measured, but typically for radiolocation systems the positional(More)
The performance of the peak and leading edge detection methods for time-of-arrival (TOA) estimation in band-limited systems is examined. Analytical expressions for the detection performance in the presence of both random noise and multipath interference are derived. A dimensionless performance factor is presented that allows simple comparisons of the TOA(More)
BACKGROUND Good interrater reliability is essential to minimize error variance and improve study power. Reasons why raters differ in scoring the same patient include information variance (different information obtained because of asking different questions), observation variance (the same information is obtained, but raters differ in what they notice and(More)
Recent research that tests interactive devices for prolonged therapy practice has revealed new prospects for robotics combined with graphical and other forms of biofeedback. Previous human-robot interactive systems have required different software commands to be implemented for each robot leading to unnecessary developmental overhead time each time a new(More)
— This paper presents a comprehensive investigation on the error characteristics of time-of-arrival (TOA) measurements obtained from positioning systems in indoor environments where rich multipath and nonline-of-sight propagation exist. By careful analysis of the measured data from three different sets of measurements, a model for the range errors is(More)
