Use of Sensors for Position Determination

Part of the Navigation: Science and Technology book series (NASTECH)


In Chap.  4 radiolocation time-of-arrival determination was analyzed as a prime method for determining the position of a mobile device due to its high accuracy even in severe multipath conditions indoors. In this chapter an alternative approach to position determination using sensor data is analyzed.
