Fundamentals of wireless positioning and navigation techniques
Objectifs du cours
- To provide a survey of modern wireless positioning systems and techniques as applied today to the fields of IoT, cellular phones, transportation, navigation, timing, etc.
- To review the first principles of radio frequency propagation concepts to better understand the challenges and limitations of wireless positioning and navigation systems.
- To explain the fundamentals of satellite-based positioning systems and techniques as used today in mass-market as well as in professional equipment providing m-level and mm-level accuracy, respectively.
- To explain the fundamentals of terrestrial network-based positioning and navigation techniques as applied to the mobiles and IoT networks.
- To describe the main metrics and some fundamental theoretical limits (Cramér-Rao Lower Bound) that can be used to evaluate the positioning accuracy
The course addresses anyone involved in wireless positioning and localization, from the manager who wants to learn the basics, to the technician, research student, or engineer who wants to learn the more advanced concepts, including the users, providers, and manufacturers of wireless connected systems and IoT.
- Introduction (applications, classification, comparison, ...)
- Radio frequency propagation, models, and induced errors
- Evaluation of positioning accuracy and fundamentals limits (Cramér-Rao Lower Bound)
- Satellite-based systems for positioning, navigation and timing (e.g. GPS, Glonass, Galileo, Beidou)
- Terrestrial network-based positioning and navigation (e.g. cellular, Wi-Fi, IoT)
Dr Cyril Botteron, Lecturer at EPFL and GNSS Products Line Manager at Syderal SA, received his Electronics and Electrotechnics Engineering degree in 1991 (EICN ETS, Switzerland) and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2003 (University of Calgary, Canada). In 2003, he was appointed as Maitre Assistant at Université de Neuchâtel, Switzerland, lecturing as well as creating and developing two research groups with activities related to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology. In 2009, he joined Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, developing new teaching activities as well as leading, managing, and coaching the research and project activities of the Positioning, Navigation, Timing, Sensing and Communications sub-group totaling 8-12 full-time researchers. From 2003 to 2013, he also worked as external independent expert for the EU Galileo project. Cyril is the author or co-author of 5 patents and over 130 publications in major journals and conferences, and is a senior member of the IEEE since 2006 and a ION professional member since 2003.
