Beamspace ESPRIT DOA

Beamspace ESPRIT direction of arrival (DOA) estimator for ULA

Library

Direction of Arrival (DOA)

phaseddoalib

Description

The Beamspace ESPRIT DOA block estimates the direction of arrival of a specified number of narrowband signals incident on a uniform linear array using the estimation of signal parameters via rotational invariance technique (ESPRIT) algorithm in beamspace.

Parameters

Signal Propagation speed (m/s)

Specify the propagation speed of the signal, in meters per second, as a positive scalar. You can use the function physconst to specify the speed of light.

Operating frequency (Hz)

Specify the operating frequency of the system, in hertz, as a positive scalar.

Number of signals

Specify the number of signals as a positive integer scalar.

Spatial smoothing

Specify the amount of averaging, L, used by spatial smoothing to estimate the covariance matrix as a nonnegative integer. Each increase in smoothing handles one extra coherent source, but reduces the effective number of elements by one. The maximum value of this parameter is N – 2, where N is the number of sensors.

Type of least squares method

Specify the least squares method used for ESPRIT as one of TLS or LS where TLS refers to total least squares and LSrefers to least squares.

Beam fan center direction (deg)

Specify the direction of the center of the beam fan, in degrees, as a real scalar value between –90° and 90°.

Source of number of beams

Specify the source of the number of beams as one of Auto or Property. If you set this parameter to Auto, the number of beams equals N – L, where N is the number of array elements and L is the value of Spatial smoothing.

Number of beams

Specify the number of beams as a positive scalar integer. The lower the number of beams, the greater the reduction in computational cost. This parameter appears when you set Source of number of beams to Property.

Simulate using

Block simulation method, specified as Interpreted Execution or Code Generation. If you want your block to use the MATLAB® interpreter, choose Interpreted Execution. If you want your block to run as compiled code, choose Code Generation. Compiled code requires time to compile but usually runs faster.

Interpreted execution is useful when you are developing and tuning a model. The block runs the underlying System object™ in MATLAB. You can change and execute your model quickly. When you are satisfied with your results, you can then run the block using Code Generation. Long simulations run faster than they would in interpreted execution. You can run repeated executions without recompiling. However, if you change any block parameters, then the block automatically recompiles before execution.

When setting this parameter, you must take into account the overall model simulation mode. The table shows how the Simulate using parameter interacts with the overall simulation mode.

When the Simulink® model is in Accelerator mode, the block mode specified using Simulate using overrides the simulation mode.

Array Parameters

Specify sensor array as

Specify a ULA sensor array directly or by using a MATLAB expression.

Types

Array (no subarrays)
MATLAB expression

Number of elements

Specifies the number of elements in the array as an integer.

Element spacing

Specify the spacing, in meters, between two adjacent elements in the array.

Array axis

This parameter appears when the Geometry parameter is set to ULA or when the block only supports a ULA array geometry. Specify the array axis as x, y, or z. All ULA array elements are uniformly spaced along this axis in the local array coordinate system.

Taper

Tapers, also known as element weights, are applied to sensor elements in the array. Tapers are used to modify both the amplitude and phase of the transmitted or received data.

Specify element tapering as a complex-valued scalar or a complex-valued 1-by-N row vector. In this vector, N represents the number of elements in the array. If Taper is a scalar, the same weight is applied to each element. If Taper is a vector, a weight from the vector is applied to the corresponding sensor element. A weight must be applied to each element in the sensor array.

Expression

A valid MATLAB expression containing a constructor for a uniform linear array, for example, phased.ULA.

Element type

Specify antenna or microphone type as

  • Custom Antenna

  • Omni Microphone

  • Custom Microphone

Exponent of cosine pattern

This parameter appears when you set Element type to Cosine Antenna.

Specify the exponent of the cosine pattern as a scalar or a 1-by-2 vector. You must specify all values as non-negative real numbers. When you set Exponent of cosine pattern to a scalar, both the azimuth direction cosine pattern and the elevation direction cosine pattern are raised to the specified value. When you set Exponent of cosine pattern to a 1-by-2 vector, the first element is the exponent for the azimuth direction cosine pattern and the second element is the exponent for the elevation direction cosine pattern.

Operating frequency range (Hz)

This parameter appears when Element type is set to Isotropic Antenna, Cosine Antenna, or Omni Microphone.

Specify the operating frequency range, in hertz, of the antenna element as a 1-by-2 row vector in the form [LowerBound,UpperBound]. The antenna element has no response outside the specified frequency range.

Operating frequency vector (Hz)

This parameter appears when Element type is set to Custom Antenna or Custom Microphone.

Specify the frequencies, in Hz, at which to set the antenna and microphone frequency responses as a 1-by-L row vector of increasing values. Use Frequency responses to set the frequency responses. The antenna or microphone element has no response outside the frequency range specified by the minimum and maximum elements of Operating frequency vector (Hz).

Frequency responses (dB)

This parameter appears when Element type is set to Custom Antenna or Custom Microphone.

Specify this parameter as the frequency response of an antenna or microphone, in decibels, for the frequencies defined by Operating frequency vector (Hz). Specify Frequency responses (dB) as a 1-by-L vector matching the dimensions of the vector specified in Operating frequency vector (Hz).

Azimuth angles (deg)

The value of Q must match the value of Q specified by Elevation angles (deg). The value of P must match the value of P specified by Azimuth angles (deg_. The value of L must match the value of L specified by Operating frequency vector (Hz).

Polar pattern frequencies (Hz)

This parameter appears when the Element type is set to Custom Microphone.

Specify the measuring frequencies of the polar patterns as a 1-by-M vector. The measuring frequencies lie within the frequency range specified byOperating frequency vector (Hz). Frequency units are in Hz.

Polar pattern angles (deg)

This parameter appears when Element type is set to Custom Microphone.

Specify the measuring angles of the polar patterns, as a 1-by-N vector. The angles are measured from the central pickup axis of the microphone, and must be between –180° and 180°, inclusive.

Polar pattern (dB)

This parameter appears when Element type is set to Custom Microphone.

Specify the magnitude of the microphone element polar pattern as an M-by-N matrix. M is the number of measuring frequencies specified in Polar pattern frequencies (Hz). N is the number of measuring angles specified in Polar pattern angles (deg). Each row of the matrix represents the magnitude of the polar pattern measured at the corresponding frequency specified in Polar pattern frequencies (Hz) and all angles specified in Polar pattern angles (deg). Assume that the pattern is measured in the azimuth plane. In the azimuth plane, the elevation angle is 0° and the central pickup axis is 0° degrees azimuth and 0° degrees elevation. Assume that the polar pattern is symmetric around the central axis. You can construct the microphone’s response pattern in 3-D space from the polar pattern.

This check box appears only when the Element type parameter is set to Isotropic Antenna or Omni Microphone.
