Abstract

This major qualifying project implements a simple indoor localization system using software defined radio. Both time of arrival and received signal strength methods are used by an array of wireless receivers to trilaterate a cooperative transmitter. The implemented system builds upon an IEEE 802.11b-like communications platform implemented in GNU Radio. Our results indicate substantial room for improvement, particularly in the acquisition of time data. This project contributes a starting point for ongoing research in indoor localization, both through our literature review and system implementation.
