Whitepaper: Wireless Local Positioning System Via DS-CDMA and Beamforming: A Perturbation Analysis

by Michigan Technological UniversityJan 01, 2008

This paper published by Michigan Technological University analyzes the perturbation effects on the performance of a novel Wireless Local Position System (WLPS) with applications in homeland security, defense, vehicle collision avoidance, and multi-robot collaboration and coordination. This WLPS has two main components: dynamic Base Station (DBS), and Transponder (TRX), mounted at the monitoring and target mobiles, respectively. The DBS detects TRXs via unique ID codes assigned to them. This structure leads to a unique wireless structure.

Whitepaper: A Novel Wireless Local Positioning System Via a Merger of DS-CDMA and Beamforming: Probability-of-Detection Performance Analysis Under Array Perturbations

by Michigan Technological UniversityJan 01, 2008

The proposed WLPS has unique signaling schemes that discriminate it from the traditional wireless systems and allows the WLPS to have many civilian and military applications. The WLPS consists of two main parts: the detecting unit, a base station carried by a mobile unit defined as Dynamic Base Station (DBS), and the being detected unit, a TRansponder (TRX) that is mounted on the targets, each assigned a unique IDentification code (ID code).

Whitepaper: Bridging the Gap Between Concepts and Reality: 802.11 Standard Uncovered

by Michigan Technological UniversityJan 01, 2008

The ability to communicate within any destination, at any given moment both effectively and efficiently tends to define the success (existence) within not only the world of technology but also the world’s social and economical standpoint. The 802.11 standard had helped emerge the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) industry as one of the fastest-growing segments of the communications industry. Countries around the world are able to use the 802.11 standard to communicate with the world while at the same time decrease the country’s financial costs by excluding the hard wire communication lines and capitalize on the standard’s flexibility and functionality revolving around the concept of cellular architecture
