Robust Tracking in Cellular Networks Using HMM Filters and Cell-ID Measurements

A localization algorithm based on cell identification (Cell-ID) information is proposed. Instead of building the localization decisions only on the serving base station, all the detected Cell-IDs (serving or nonserving) by the mobile station are utilized. The statistical modeling of user motion and the measurements are done via a hidden Markov model (HMM), and the localization decisions are made with maximum a posteriori estimation criterion using the posterior probabilities from an HMM filter. The results are observed and compared with standard alternatives on an example whose data were collected from a worldwide interoperability for microwave access network in a challenging urban area in the Brussels capitol city.


Neural network method for direction of arrival estimation with uniform cylindrical microstrip patch array
Caylar, S.; Dural, G.; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2010-02-01)
In this study, a new neural network algorithm is proposed for real-time multiple source tracking problem with cylindrical patch antenna array based on a previously reported Modified Neural Multiple Source Tracking (MN-MUST) algorithm. The proposed algorithm, namely cylindrical microstrip patch array modified neural multiple source tracking (CMN-MUST) algorithm implements MN-MUST algorithm on a cylindrical microstrip patch array structure. CMN-MUST algorithm uses the advantage of directive pattern of microst...
Performance analysis of adaptive loading OFDM under Rayleigh fading
Canpolat, B; Tanik, Y (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-07-01)
In this paper, we investigate the performance of adaptive loading orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) under Rayleigh fading with maximal ratio-combining (MRC) diversity at the receiver. We assume that channel-state information is available at both the transmitter and the receiver. Closed-form expressions for the lower bound on the average capacity of OFDM transmission under Rayleigh fading are provided for ideal MRC diversity. Simple approximate expressions for the average capacity of the Rayl...
Sparse Attack Construction and State Estimation in the Smart Grid: Centralized and Distributed Models
Ozay, Mete; Esnaola, Inaki; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Kulkarni, Sanjeev R.; Poor, H. Vincent (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-07-01)
New methods that exploit sparse structures arising in smart grid networks are proposed for the state estimation problem when data injection attacks are present. First, construction strategies for unobservable sparse data injection attacks on power grids are proposed for an attacker with access to all network information and nodes. Specifically, novel formulations for the optimization problem that provide a flexible design of the trade-off between performance and false alarm are proposed. In addition, the ce...
A Feedback Quantization Scheme Leveraging Fairness and Throughput for Heterogeneous Multi-User Diversity Systems
SOYDAN, Yusuf; Candan, Çağatay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-06-01)
We propose a feedback quantization scheme for downlink multiuser diversity systems. The scheme is designed for heterogeneous users, i.e., users operating under different levels of mean signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). The proposed scheme equally distributes the channel access time to user clusters and, at the same time, maximizes the sum-rate capacity under equal-channel-access-time constraint. The method is compared to a normalized SNR scheduler, full-feedback scheduler, and finite-rate feedback scheduler wi...
Radar target classification method with reduced aspect dependency and improved noise performance using multiple signal classification algorithm
SEÇMEN, MUSTAFA; Sayan, Gönül (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2009-12-01)
This study introduces a novel aspect and polarisation invariant radar target classification method based on the use of multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm for feature extraction. In the suggested method, for each candidate target at each designated reference aspect, feature matrices called 'MUSIC spectrum matrices (MSMs)' are constructed using the target's scattered data at different late-time intervals. An individual MSM corresponds to a map of a target's natural resonance-related power distri...
