Intended learning outcomes

The general purpose is to give theoretical as well as practical knowledge in different positioning technologies. After completing the course, the student is expected to be able to:

  • Identify the most common positioning systems and their main characteristics
  • Assess the potential of using different positioning systems for a certain application
  • Explain the implementation principles of selected positioning systems and methods
  • Given a sequence of measurements, apply different positioning methods in order to estimate the position of a target
  • Perform map matching given a road network and a sequence of position estimates
  • Estimate and assess the accuracy of a general positioning system
  • Identify and explain measurements relevant for positioning and how they are measured in different positioning systems

Course content

Positioning systems, e.g. GNSS, cellular and WLAN. Positioning methods, e.g. ToA, TDoA, AoA and pattern matching. Range and angle measurements. Accuracy metrics and estimation. Selected topics within vehicle positioning, GIS, databases, pattern recognition and tracking.

Teaching and working methods

The course contains lectures, tutorials and laboratory work.
