Speech Title: Multistatic localization in the Absence of Transmitter Positions

Abstract: Multistatic localization, involving one or several transmitters actively sending out signals to locate an object from its echo, is widely used in practical systems. This talk presents some results for the multistatic localization problem in absence of transmitter positions. For the problem of locating a stationary object in the absence of transmitter positions, we propose a semidefinite relaxation (SDR) method for joint estimation of the object and transmitter positions using time delay (TD) measurements from both indirect and direct paths. Moreover, we present some key theoretical results for the performance of the proposed method. Furthermore, we introduce a calibration object to address the multistatic localization problem in the absence of synchronizations between the transmitter and receivers and among the receivers. For this challenging problem, we propose a three-step estimation method to jointly estimate the transmitter position, synchronization errors, and object position. Theoretical analysis is conducted to validate the performance of the proposed method.
