—When particle filters are used to estimate indoor position with floor plan constraints, it can happen that, even when all the particles lie in the corridor, the particles' mean is not in the corridor. Such a position estimate is perceived by the user as a mistake in the algorithm. Projecting the particles' mean to the nearest corridor location is an(More)
—This article presents a training-free probabilistic pedestrian motion model that uses indoor map information represented as a set of links that are connected by nodes. This kind of structure can be modelled as a graph. In the proposed model, as a position estimate reaches a link end, the choice probabilities of the next link are proportional to the total(More)
—In this article, we address the prospects and key enabling technologies for highly efficient and accurate device positioning and tracking in fifth generation (5G) radio access networks. Building on the premises of ultra-dense networks (UDNs) as well as on the adoption of multicarrier waveforms and antenna arrays in the access nodes (ANs), we first(More)
—It is commonly expected that future fifth generation (5G) networks will be deployed with a high spatial density of access nodes (ANs) in order to meet the envisioned capacity requirements of the upcoming wireless networks. Densification is beneficial not only for communications but it also creates a convenient infrastructure for highly accurate user node(More)
This article presents a probabilistic motion model that is based on an economical graph-based indoor map representation, such that the motion of the user is constrained according to the floor plan of a building. The floor plan is modeled as a combination of links and open space polygons that are connected by nodes. In the authors' earlier work the link(More)
—In this article, the prospects and enabling technologies for high-efficiency device positioning and location-aware communications in emerging 5G networks are reviewed. We will first describe some key technical enablers and demonstrate through concrete ray-tracing and map based evaluations that positioning accuracies below one meter can be accomplished by(More)
