Wireless Positioning and Localization Design with MATLAB

Date Time

Positioning and Localization have a big role to play in the next generation of wireless applications. Positioning is finding the location co-ordinates of the device, whereas localization is a feature-based technique where you get to know the environment in a specific geography. There are various approaches taken by different standards such as 5G/ WLAN/ Bluetooth/ UWB to identify the position of the device. In this webinar, we will discuss various techniques used to design a system which determine the position of the user. 


Topics include:

  • Understand the standards definition about positioning and learn how to estimate the distance between transmitter and receiver
  • Calculate the position of 5G NR User Equipment (UE) within a network of gNodeBs (gNBs) by using an NR Positioning Reference Signal (PRS)
  • Estimate the position of a user in a multipath environment by using a Time-Of-Arrival-based (ToA-based) positioning algorithm defined in the IEEE 802.11az
  • Compare and contrast the performance of the positioning algorithm

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
