Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Consultant and practitioner Bensky gives comprehensive coverage of all short-range wireless positioning methods, surveying each technique's theory of operations, advantages and disadvantages, applicability in different domains, implementation procedure and accuracy. He gives novices the basic principles and applications of positioning, including signal parameters, basics of location, and navigation systems and then covers the spread spectrum (including acquisition, tracking, measurement of elapsed time and propagation time resolution), time transfer (including calibration constants, range uncertainty and ranging procedure in a wireless network), multicarrier phase management (including estimation of distance), received signal strength (including location methods), time of arrival and time difference of arrival, angle of arrival (including triangulation and antenna arrays), cellular networks (including location technologies, pattern recognition and systems based on handsets or networks), short-range wireless networks and RFID, and ultra-wideband. The illustrations here are particularly clear and helpful. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

GPS may get the headlines, but several other short-range wireless-positioning methods play a huge role of their own in networks like Bluetooth and applications like electronic toll collection. This first-of-its-kind book brings all of these methods together in a single source, surveying each technique's theory of operation, advantages and disadvantages, and implementation procedures. It helps engineers to select the right technology for any application and ensure the best results possible. This one-stop resource covers fundamental principles and guides engineers, step by step, through radio signal time of flight methods, the signal strength method, the angle of arrival system, and the geometric use of distance measurement to determine location.
