5G Position and Orientation Estimation through Millimeter Wave MIMO
Paper i proceeding, 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.
