"Some recent results on target localization and tracking, and sensor placement"

by Prof. Er-Wei Bai

Ashby Conference Room, Ashby 7.005

This talk will present some of our recent results on target localization and tracking. It focuses on (1) robustifying triangulation method by a nonlinear optimization that is shown to have one and only one minimum, (2) tracking by binary sensors without a high density distribution or overlapping of sensing ranges and (3) dealing with unknown signal propagation models.

Bio-sketch of the speaker:
