Simultaneous Communications and Localization Low Data Rate Low Cost Sensing Systems


Project Description

The aim of the project is to design and study the performance of asystemthatcan combine communications andlocalization.The envisionedapplicationscenario is for low cost sensors where adding extra hardware andprocessingpower to aid in localization is notdesirable.In short, the idea is todesigna "cheap" sensor that can utilize the same HW to send the data it collects and allow other devices to determine its position.

Tareq Al-Naffouri
​Professor Al-Naffouri's research interests lie in the areas of adaptive, sparse and statistical signal processing and their applications. These applications include communications, ultrawideband and ultrasound-based localization and tracking. His research also extends to the design and analysis of wireless networks.

Desired Project Deliverables

​​1) Designing singaling schemes for joint communication and localization2) System implementation using MATLAB and/or low level embedded system programming 3) Testing the system performance in a controlled environment
