Position Location Techniques and Applications Book Excerpt:

This book is the definitive guide to the techniques and applications of position location, covering both terrestrial and satellite systems. It gives all the techniques, theoretical models, and algorithms that engineers need to improve their current location schemes and to develop future location algorithms and systems. Comprehensive coverage is given to system design trade-offs, complexity issues, and the design of efficient positioning algorithms to enable the creation of high-performance location positioning systems. Traditional methods are also reexamined in the context of the challenges posed by reconfigurable and multihop networks. Applications discussed include wireless networks (WiFi, ZigBee, UMTS, and DVB networks), cognitive radio, sensor networks and multihop networks.

Handbook of Position Location Book Excerpt:

Radio systems capable of localization have emerging applications inhomeland security, law enforcement, emergency response, defensecommand and control, multi-robot coordination andvehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian collision avoidance.In fact, high resolution localization is vital for manyapplications, including: traffic alert, emergency services, e.g.,indoor localization for firefighters, and battlefield command andcontrol. These systems promise to dramatically reduce society'svulnerabilities to catastrophic events and improve its quality ofof life. While work this important area is progressing, limited resourcesare available to support graduate students and researchers in thisimportant area. Specifically, a limited number of books has beenpublished in this area covering selected subjects. Thiscomprehensive handbook offers gaps of available localization bookspresenting in-depth coverage from fundamentals of coordinates toadvanced application examples.
