Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of moving object localization using Ultra-Wide-Band(UWB) range measurement and the method of location accuracy improvement of the indoor moving object. Unlike outdoor environment, it is difficult to track moving object position due to various noises in indoor. UWB is a radio technology that has attention for localization applications recently. UWB's ranging technique offer the cm accuracy. Its capabilities for data transmission, range accurate estimation and material penetration are suitable technology for indoor positioning application. This paper propose a positioning algorithm of an moving object using UWB ranging technique and particle filter. Existing positioning algorithms eliminate estimation errors and bias after location estimation of mobile object. But in this paper, the proposed algorithm is that eliminate predictable UWB range distance error first and then estimate the moving object's position. This paper shows that the proposed positioning algorithm is more accurate than existing location algorithms through experiments. In this study, the position of moving object is estimated after the triangulation and eliminating the bias and the ranging error from estimation range between three fixed known anchors and a mobile object using UWB. Finally, a particle filter is used to improve on accuracy of mobile object positioning. The results of experiment show that the proposed localization scheme is more precise under the indoor.
