Abstract
Multipath propagation is still one of the major problems in local positioning systems today. Especially in indoor environments, the received signals are disturbed by blockages and reflections. This can lead to a large bias in the user's time-of-arrival (TOA) value. Thus multipath is the most dominant error source for positioning. In order to improve the positioning performance in multipath environments, recent multipath mitigation algorithms based upon the concept of sequential Bayesian estimation are used. The presented approach tries to overcome the multipath problem by estimating the channel dynamics, using Unscented Kalman Filters (UKF). Simulations on artificial and measured channels show the profit of the proposed estimator model.
