Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With vast mmWave spectrum and narrow beam antenna technology, precise position location is now possible in 5G and future mobile communication systems. In this article, we describe how centimeter-level localization accuracy can be achieved, particularly through the use of map-based techniques. We show how data fusion of parallel information streams, machine learning, and cooperative localization techniques further improve positioning accuracy.
