  • Publication number: 20200217920
    Abstract: The disclosed subject matter relates to a method and a system for determining a position of a movable agent device in a reflective environment of which a geometric model is known and in which at least one anchor device has a predetermined position, comprising: transmitting a first and a second ultra-wideband pulse signal via a first and a second uni-directional antenna of the anchor device, respectively, and receiving respective received signals via an omni-directional antenna of the agent device; defining a set of candidate positions within said geometric model, and, for each candidate position, calculating a set of multipath components as a function of the geometric model, directivities of the uni-directional antennas and the position of the anchor device; determining a deviation measure between the calculated multipath components and said received signals; and obtaining the position of the agent device as the candidate position with the minimum deviation measure.
