5G Based Localization

♦ Introduction and Background

The 5G based localization is getting more and more concerned from academia and industry thanks to the higher resolution of angle and distance estimation resulting from the larger bandwidth and larger amount of antennas. It was also exciting to find that the multiple path components in the radio propagation would actually enhance the performance of localization instead of performing as a noise. What’s more, the localization utilizing 5G radio signals also demonstrates higher level of stability with less cost. So we focus on the 5G based localization technologies especially in the context of autonomous driving, and here is what we have done.

♦ Equipment and Methods

The research team utilize two USRP devices as the transmitter and receiver to achieve indoor angle measurement. Based on AOA positioning method, the measurement angle can be used for positioning.

♦ Experimental Results

One antenna was used at the transmitter and two antennas were used at the receiver. The antenna spacing was 4.28cm, the carrier frequency was 3.5GHz, the transceiver spacing was 3-4m, and the measurement accuracy was within 5 degrees.

♦ Future Deployment

This technology will be deployed on OAI and used for positioning in underground tunnels in Xiong’an New Area.
