Finding the position of a wireless source on the basis of the exchange of radio signals has been an important problem in the recent evolution of mobile communications and sensor networks.
This course covers the basics of positioning based on wireless measurements with particular emphasis on indoor scenarios, where the GPS-based approach is denied for physical reasons.
Special attention is devoted to cost-effective solutions for real-world problems, with strong integration with the existing wireless hardware and network protocols.
The course can be summarized in the following sub-topics:
Introduction and motivation
Classical geometrical approaches
Algorithm and theoretical analysis
