This objective of this internship is to develop geolocation algorithms that can be used with commodity electronics available in modern smartphones.  The method that will be investigated is called virtual angle-of-arrival estimation, and requires fusing the radio signal received from a 3G base station with the accelerometers and magnetometer signals provided by an inertial measurement unit.  The student will be responsible for working on the existing prototype (which uses Ettus USRP-N210 or USRP-X310 software-defined radios), realize outdoor experiments, and analyze the obtained results. The student should be familiar with at least two (and preferably all three) of the following: Matlab, Verilog/VHDL or C++/Python programming.


NTU Mentor: Prof. Wee Peng Tay

ULB contact: Prof. François Quitin


Allowance: 1000 SGD/month (subject to school of EEE approval)
