Expert Talk on Localization

  title={Expert Talk on Localization},
  author={Mathias Pelka and J{\'o} {\'A}gila Bitsch and Horst Hellbr{\"u}ck and Klaus Wehrle},
Localization is an important challenge for all applications with autonomous navigating devices. Systems like GPS solve this challenge for most outdoor applications but such systems are not able to operate indoors. Indoor localization therefore is an active research topic. When it comes to locating nodes that travel from indoors to outdoors most systems are overwhelmed. Thus, we propose a system capable to localize nodes in such applications by using COTS transceiver chips. We utilize the phase…

A system for live localization in smart environments

This work presents a system which is able to track the user in a live (online) mode with a constant frame rate while maintaining high accuracy, and conducts a demonstration setup the proposed system was able to locate users with a frame rate as low as 500 ms and a mean location error of 0.3 m.

Passive RFID tomographic imaging for device-free user localization

This work formulate and show how a tomographic imaging algorithm provides both low computational complexity and highly accurate position estimates, and finds the algorithm can locate the human with as low as 30 cm mean location error.

Fast and Accurate Wi-Fi Localization in Large-Scale Indoor Venues

This paper proposes a fast and accurate indoor localization method for large-scale indoor venues using a small subset of APs, called representative APs (rAPs), which achieves the estimation error of 1.8\(\sim \)2.1 m, which can be considered a very competitive performance even in small-scale places with a few hundreds of AP's.

Adaptive clustering for device free user positioning utilizing passive RFID

This work presents a transponder clustering approach based on inherent EPC protocol based bit masking, which allows to calculate fast coarse grained localization results and increase the precision by time, so that the user is able to adjust between localization speed and accuracy.

Dial it in: Rotating RF sensors to enhance radio tomography

An RTI system of servo-nodes, RF sensors equipped with servo motors which autonomously “dial it in”, i.e., change position and orientation to optimize the RSS on links of the network is presented.

RASS: A real-time, accurate and scalable system for tracking transceiver-free objects

A real-time tracking system RASS is put forward, which scales well to a large deployment field without sacrificing the latency and accuracy and is promising in the applications like the safeguard system.

Advanced real-time indoor parking localization based on semi-static objects

The algorithm fulfills the real-time requirement of the localization task for a computer-controlled car through the use of a particle filter that uses laser scanner measurements and odometry data to localize the car in a precalculated probability grid map, containing static and semi-static elements.
