Simultaneous Communications and Localization Low Data Rate Low Cost Sensing Systems

Simultaneous Communications and Localization Low Data Rate Low Cost Sensing Systems

Internship Description

The aim of the project is to design and study the performance of a system that can combine communications and localization. The envisioned application scenario is for low cost sensors where adding extra hardware and processing power to aid in localization is not desirable. In short, the idea is to design "cheap" sensor that can utilize the same HW to send the data it collects and allow other devices to determine its position.

Deliverables/Expectations

​​1) Designing singaling schemes for joint communication and localization
2) System implementation using MATLAB and/or low level embedded system programming
3) Testing the system performance in a controlled environment
