Comprehensive coverage is given to system design trade-offs, complexity issues, and the design of efficient positioning algorithms to enable the creation of high-performance location positioning systems. Traditional methods are also reexamined in the context of the challenges posed by reconfigurable and multihop networks. Applications discussed include wireless networks (WiFi, ZigBee, UMTS, and DVB networks), cognitive radio, sensor networks and multihop networks.
- Contains a complete guide to models, techniques, and applications of position location
- Includes applications to wireless networks, demonstrating the relevance of location positioning to these "hot" areas in research and development
- Covers system design trade-offs and the design of efficient positioning algorithms, enabling the creation of future location positioning systems
- Provides a theoretical underpinning for understanding current position location algorithms, giving researchers a foundation to develop future algorithms

"Overall, this book has a wider potential audience than communications engineers. Anyone involved in scanners, such as medical ultrasound instruments or robotic world-map builders for autonomous mobile vehicles, will have a possible interest in this book because the authors present their material in tutorial form, making it possible to benefit from the basic principles without being a communications specialist."
