A Fisher information analysis of joint localization and synchronization in near field
Paper in proceedings, 2020

In 5G communication, arrays are used for both positioning and communication. As the arrays become larger, the far-field assumption is increasingly being violated and curvature of the wavefront should be taken into account. In this paper, we use a single large linear array and relative phase measurements to perform the localization and synchronization. We explicitly contrast near-field and far-field uplink localization performance in the presence of a clock bias from a Fisher information perspective and show how a simple algorithm can provide a coarse estimate of a user's location and clock bias.
