Measuring and Modeling the Radio Frequency Signal Signature for Transmission Scheduling and Indoor Localization.

In this talk, I am revisiting the work I did just before defending my thesis with the hope to learn some lesson for a different research area. My work was purely based on obtaining empirical data of wireless signal interference and then using the information to compute dense transmission schedules. My current goal is to revisit what we know and have learned over several decades from extensive wireless signal measurements to develop an inexpensive physical layer simulation for network simulators so that indoor localization algorithms can be tested and verified. The talk will mainly focus on the wireless propagation principles, the measuring and modeling techniques from my past work, overview of state-of-the-art in wireless indoor localization and some ideas that can be studied to develop the physical layer simulator which can be used for localization purposes.
