Signal processing for wireless positioning - Tampere University of Technology

Signal processing for wireless positioning


The Signal Processing for wireless positioning group is working under the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering (ELT) at the Tampere University of Technology (TUT). Our target is to perform research and provide teaching in the area of mobile wireless positioning. Currently, our main research direction on cognitive positioning algorithms for seamless indoor-outdoor localization.

Research topics

  • Baseband receiver processing (acquisition, tracking, ...)
  • Binary Offset Carrier (BOC) modulation studies
  • Wireless positioning (UMTS/WCDMA mobile positioning, Galileo, GPS and modernized GPS,  GLONASS, ...)
  • CDMA signal processing algorithms
  • GNSS receiver design
  • Accurate tracking in multipath channels
  • Unambiguous acquisition of BOC/MBOC signals; sidelobe cancellation methods
