Wireless positioning and navigation area is a prevalent area embroidered in the majority of wireless communication devices and applications. The number of technologies supporting wireless navigation has been continuously increasing in the last decade, from those based on classical satellite navigation systems to technologies employing inertial sensors, Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and cellular systems, and even ultra-sound and visible light systems.
