5G Position and Orientation Estimation through Millimeter Wave MIMO
Paper in proceedings, 2015
Millimeter wave and massive MIMO are considered enabling technologies for future 5G networks. While their benefits for achieving high-data rate communications are well-known, their potential advantages for accurate positioning are largely undiscovered. We derive sufficient conditions under which transmission from a single mm-wave base station leads to a non-singular Fisher information matrix associated with the position and orientation of a user terminal equipped with multiple antennas, which is in turn a prerequisite for joint estimation of the position and orientation.
