Description of Work

The LocME Project aims to develop/evolve wireless based localization methods, by combining the signal information provided by multiple heterogeneous wireless systems. The proposed work is expected to simulate the overall existence of a heterogeneous network and identify the accuracy improvement that can be achieved when combining information from these different networks.

The work is also expected to develop an automated user positioning platform for next generation heterogeneous cooperative networks. In the context of the project an image processing application will be also developed to extract building information using satellite photography. This building information will thereafter be used for outdoor positioning purposes.

To address the various concepts of the project the following scenarios will be investigated:

  • Outdoor positioning scenarios using cellular/broadband systems

  • Indoor positioning scenarios using indoor wireless systems

  • Outdoor to Indoor Positioning using heterogeneous radio systems
