A new paper demonstrating the power of the Kalman filter is now available. GTPG researcher Qian Yang and coauthors use sensor-fusion data from a microwave backscatter link to demonstrate mm-scale localization of RF transponders. This study is unique because it breaks down the individual contributions of signal strength, backscatter phase, and inertial sensor measurements to a very precise position estimation problem. This work is an important next-step in the “holy grail” of wireless position location: precise motion-capture at a distance in 3D.
Prof. Durgin is currently out of the office, serving on the Technical Advisory Group of HRL Laboratories. He will be back in the office on Friday.
Once again, we are proud to present the “GTPG in a Word Cloud” 2018 edition. This is where all of our research paper publications are fed into a word cloud to give an overview of what we worked on last year. Compare this to the 2017 edition. In 2018, “RFID”, “power”, and “antennas” reigned supreme. Picture courtesy www.wordclouds.com.
