Localization has attracted a lot of research effort in the last decade due to the explosion of location based service (LBS). In particular, fingerprinting localization has received much attention due to its simplicity and compatibility with existing hardware. In this work, we take a closer look at the underlying aspects of fingerprinting localization. First, we review the various methods to create a radiomap. In particular, we look the traditional fingerprinting method which is based purely on measurements, the parametric pathloss regression model and the non-parametric Gaussian Process (GP) regression model. Then, based on these three methods and measurements from a real world deployment, the various aspects such as the density of access points (APs) and impact of an outdated signature map which affect the performance of fingerprinting localization are examined. At the end of the paper, the audiences should have a better understanding of what to expect from fingerprinting localization in a real world deployment.

The decoding performance of polar codes strongly depends on the decoding algorithm used, while also the decoder throughput and its latency mainly depend on the decoding algorithm. In this work, we implement the powerful successive cancellation list (SCL) decoder on a GPU and identify the bottlenecks of this algorithm with ...

A New PRACH Transmission Scheme in Unlicensed Spectrum

  • Luo Z.
  • Meng Y.
  • Tao T.

For the unlicensed spectrum, the occupied bandwidth requirement is demanded by some regulations. The legacy scheme of Physical Random Access Channel (PRACH) for Long Term Evolution (LTE) cannot satisfy it. In this paper, we propose a novel PRACH transmission scheme to satisfy the requirement of unlicensed spectrum based on preamble ...

Mutual service processes in Euclidean spaces: existence and ergodicity

  • Baccelli F.
  • Mathieu F.
  • Norros I.

Consider a set of objects, abstracted to points of a spatially stationary point process in R-d, that deliver to each other a service at a rate depending on their distance. Assume that the points arrive as a Poisson process and leave when their service requirements have been fulfilled. We show ...
