Course Catalog 2014-2015
ELT-46206 Signal Processing for Mobile Positioning, 5-7 cr
This course is not offered during 2014-2015 term
In the future this course will be merged with the spread spectrum course and offered in another format (and possibly during Fall terms, starting with 2015) to students.
Suitable for postgraduate studies
Will not be lectured year 2014-2015
Seminar presentations + project work.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
This course is taught every 2nd year; taught during 2013-2014 The course focuses on the principles and techniques of mobile location and navigation, with emphasis on satellite navigation systems. Also cellular-based positioning, WLAN-based positioning and Signal Of Opportunity (SoO)-based positioning are to be addressed. After the course, a student will have in-depth knowledge about positioning and navigation techniques. He or she will also gain knowledge about location based services and future of wireless navigation.

Instructions for students on how to achieve the learning outcomes
The assessment is based on an exam (targeted to measuring the knowledge gained in the core contents) and an individual project pertaining to topics learned during the course. Also bonus points can be gathered during exercises and lectures.
Numerical evaluation scale (1-5) will be used on the course
