System object: phased.RootMUSICEstimator
Perform DOA estimation
ANG = step(H,X)
ANG = step(H,X,ElAng)
Starting in R2016b, instead of using the
to perform the operation defined by the System object™, you can
call the object with arguments, as if it were a function. For example,
= step(obj,x) and
y = obj(x) perform
ANG = step(H,X) estimates the direction of arrivals (DOA’s) from a signal
X using the DOA estimator
X is a matrix whose columns correspond to the signal channels.
ANG is a row vector of the estimated broadside angles (in
degrees). You can specify the argument
X as single or double
The size of the first dimension of the input matrix can vary to simulate a changing signal length. A size change can occur, for example, in the case of a pulse waveform with variable pulse repetition frequency.
ANG = step(H,X,ElAng) specifies, in addition, the assumed elevation
angles of the signals. This syntax is only applicable when the
SensorArray property of the object specifies a uniform circular
ElAng is a scalar between -90° and 90° and
is applied to all signals. The elevation angles for all signals must be the same as
required by the phase mode excitation algorithm. You can specify
ElAng as single or double precision.
The object performs an initialization the first time the object is executed. This
initialization locks nontunable properties
and input specifications, such as dimensions, complexity, and data type of the input data.
If you change a nontunable property or an input specification, the System object issues an error. To change nontunable properties or inputs, you must first
release method to unlock the object.
Estimate the DOA's of two signals received by a standard 10-element uniform linear array (ULA) having an element spacing of 1 meter. The antenna operating frequency is 150 MHz. The actual direction of the first signal is 10 degrees in azimuth and 20 degrees in elevation. The direction of the second signal is 45 degrees in azimuth and 60 degrees in elevation.

Using the root-MUSIC algorithm, estimate the azimuth angle of arrival of two signals received by a 15-element UCA having a 1.5 meter radius. The antenna operating frequency is 150 MHz. The actual direction of arrival of the first signal is 10 degrees in azimuth and 4 degrees in elevation. The direction of arrival of the second signal is 45 degrees in azimuth and -2 degrees in elevation. In estimating the directions of arrival, assume the signals arrive from 0 degrees elevation.
Set the frequencies of the signals to 500 and 600 Hz. Set the sample rate to 8 kHz and the operating frequency to 150 MHz. Then, create the baseband signals, the UCA array and the plane wave signals.
fs = 8000; fc = 150e6; t = (0:1/fs:1).'; x1 = cos(2*pi*t*500); x2 = cos(2*pi*t*600); sUCA = phased.UCA('NumElements',15,... 'Radius',1.5); x = collectPlaneWave(sUCA,[x1 x2],[10 4; 45 -2]',fc);
Add random complex gaussian white noise to the signals.
rs = RandStream('mt19937ar','Seed',0); noise = 0.1/sqrt(2)*(randn(rs,size(x))+1i*randn(rs,size(x)));
Create the phased.RootMUSICEstimator System object
sDOA = phased.RootMUSICEstimator('SensorArray',sUCA,... 'OperatingFrequency',fc,... 'NumSignalsSource','Property',... 'NumSignals',2);
Solve for the azimuth angles for zero degrees elevation.
