Tightly-Coupled Opportunistic Navigation for Deep Urban and Indoor
Tightly-Coupled Opportunistic Navigation for Deep Urban and Indoor Positioning Ken Pesyna, Zak Kassas, Jahshan Bhatti, and Todd Humphreys Presentation at ION 2011|September 23, 2011 Outline I. Motivate & define Tightly-Coupled Opportunistic Navigation (TCON) II. Explore signals of opportunity for TCON III. Discuss the central estimator to optimally fuse signals together
IV. Present experimental results Goal Optimally extract navigation and timing information from ambient radio signals Tightly-Coupled Opportunistic Navigation is a framework to achieve this goal Tightly-Coupled Opportunistic Navigation

Opportunistic Navigation Receiver continuously searches for signals from which to extract navigation and timing information Receiver employs on-the-fly signal characterization: Clock stability Clock offset Carrier-to-noise ratio Transmitter location
Tightly-Coupled Opportunistic Navigation Signals of Opportunity TCON treats all RF signals as potential signals of opportunity GNSS signals: GPS, Galileo, Glonass Cellular signals: CDMA, GSM, 4G LTE, & WiMAX Other satellite signals: Iridium Other ground-based signals: HDTV, Wi-Fi
What SOP characteristics are desirable? 1. High received carrier-to- Unfortunately, we almost never get all three noise ratio properties if we are not working with dedicated Good frequencynavigation stability signals 2.
3. Known location/timing offset Freestyle Navigation CDMA Cellular Carrier-to-noise is high, penetrates well Towers do not move Only roughly synchronized to GPS Carrier stability varies from provider to provider Iridium Carrier-to-noise ratio is higher than GNSS Global coverage
