Abstract

In this paper the design and measurement verification of optimized
planar sparse arrays for use in wireless localization applications are
presented. Existing literature on array optimization has mainly been
concerned with arrays intended for imaging applications. As the array
requirements for 3-D localization in multipath environments are
essentially different, we made an analysis of the array parameters
important for this specific application. The set of challenging
practically relevant requirements for the optimization of the planar
array layout was defined, including a restriction to a small number of
antennas and minimal interelement distance bigger than λ/2
. An adapted multi-objective particle swarm optimization stochastic
algorithm was employed to optimize array for the robust and precise
direction of arrival of a single source inside a wide angular scan range
up to ±60° in azimuth and elevation planes. Two optimized receive
arrays consisting of eight patches were manufactured and measured to
present the trade-off achieved under the desired requirements. The
effects of optimized array parameters on the performance of 3-D
positioning are validated by angle measurements in an anechoic chamber
and different indoor scenarios.
