Abstract
In the LTE, a 4th-generation cellular communications standard, downlink synchronization signalling is provided via its access nodes (ANs). This downlink signalling could provide the opportunity for the user equipment (UE) to self geo-locate with no assistance from network location processing or GPS. The proposed self geo-location approach is based on the particle filter; a general method Bayesian filtering used when the statistics of the movement model and observations are non-Gaussian. The novel aspect of the work is the creation of a synthetic array as the handset is moved, and the objective of the research is to combine the LTE downlink processing with the synthetic array processing in order to extract measurements which enhance the self-geolocation result. The performance enhancement that is afforded by the synthetic array processing relative to traditional geo-location methodology will be quantified.
