Research group

Signal processing for wireless positioning group (TLTPOS)

The Signal Processing for wireless positioning group is working under the Electrical Engineering unit in the Faculty of Iformation technology and communication sciences, at Tampere University .

Our target is to perform research and provide teaching in the area of signal processing for mobile wireless positioning and communications. Some of our main research directions are on: cognitive positioning algorithms for seamless indoor-outdoor localisation, Location Based Services supporting the citizens' well-being in a smart city concept, communication and positioning solutions for drones and aircraft, interference localization, detection, mitigation, and classification, and wearable computing.


Research focus and goals

The group expertise and research interests encompass the following topics: baseband receiver processing such as acquisition and tracking, Binary Offset Carrier (BOC) modulation studies, Wireless positioning (UMTS/WCDMA mobile positioning, Galileo, GPS and modernised GPS, GLONASS, Beidou), CDMA signal processing algorithms, GNSS receiver design, accurate tracking in multipath channels, unambiguous acquisition of BOC/MBOC signals, sidelobe cancellation methods, indoor fading channel modelling, carrier To Noise Ratio (CNR) estimators, pseudolite-based positioning, indoor & urban positioning and urban channel modelling, carrier phase estimators, Simulink-based models for Galileo and GPS receivers, WLAN-based positioning and cooperative positioning, cellular based positioning, user-driven Location Based Services, user surveys and statistical analysis, compressed sensing for WLAN localisation, 3D localisation and floor detection, spectrum sensing for location purposes, signals of opportunity, 5G positioning, convergence of communication and navigation signals, users mobility models, privacy and physical layer security in mobile localisation, GNSS interference detection and localization, location-based beamforming, IoT communication and localization, etc.
