Topic: On Radiobased Positioning

When: 20 September at 9.00-10.00

Where: Lund university, E-huset, Ole Römers väg 3. Start in EIT Lunch-room (E:2328) 

Positioning and localization are becoming more and more important in our everyday life. GPS and other satellite-based solutions provide possibilities to locate ourselves and GPS enabled devices, but there is a need for higher accuracy, low cost solutions and more robust performance in challenging scenarios such as indoors and in street canyons where the satellites are shadowed by the buildings. In this talk, we discuss the fundamentals of radio based positioning and how we can use cellular signals to perform positioning and localization in a new way with improved performance. We discuss current trends in 5G and how they will influence positioning and localization possibilities. Finally, we also discuss how machine learning can be used to learn the details of the radio environment to complement camera or Lidar based positioning.

Fredrik Tufvesson received his Ph.D. in 2000 from Lund University in Sweden. After two years at a startup company, he joined the department of Electrical and Information Technology at Lund University, where he is now professor of radio systems. His main research interest is the interplay between the radio channel and the rest of the communication system with various applications in 5G systems such as massive MIMO, mm wave communication, vehicular communication and radio based positioning.

Fredrik has authored around 80 journal papers and 140 conference papers, he is fellow of the IEEE and recently he got the Neal Shepherd Memorial Award for the best propagation paper in IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and the IEEE Communications Society best tutorial paper award.
