This project will improve theft security, passenger safety and user functionality through accurate localised passenger wireless devices.
The objective of the project is to develop a communications band localisation system in a vehicular environment with 10-centimetre accuracy, both inside the vehicle cabin and near to the exterior of the vehicle.
Accurate localisation of passenger wireless devices poses a challenging research problem because of the severe multipath environment.
An innovative solution based on time-difference-of-arrival methodologies, data fusion, sophisticated recursive filtering techniques and illumination scheduling will be investigated. The outcome is potentially applicable to other localisation scenarios degraded by multipath.
