A Low-Complexity Planar Antenna Array for Wireless Communication Applications: Robust Source Localization in Impulsive Noise

This paper proposes robust source localization methods for estimating the azimuth angle, elevation angle, velocity, and range using a low-complexity planar antenna array in impulsive non-Gaussian noise environments. The proposed robust source localization methods for wireless communication applications are based on nonlinear M-estimation provided from Huber and Hampel. Simulation results show the robustness performance of the proposed robust methods in impulsive non-Gaussian noise. Localization of moving sources are very important in a variety of wireless communication applications, such as mobile wireless sensor networks, intelligent transportation systems, wireless local area networks, radar sensor networks, and distributed sensor networks.
