Positioning algorithms

Our research mainly addresses algorithms for TDOA based localization systems and for cooperative solutions where TDOAs and distance between particular nodes are available.  In positioning systems deployed in harsh environments the number of results and their quality depends on propagation conditions. Therefore our activity in this field addresses statistical approach. The main solutions implemented in our systems are based on  Extended Kalman Filter.

The designed algorithms, when used in systems with thoughtfully planned infrastructure and sufficient anchor nodes density allow  to reach the accuracy of several centimeters.

Exemplary results achieved in multilateral system with developed algorithms are shown in Fig. 1, positioning errors CDFs are presented in Fig. 2
