Abstract

This paper presents a sampling alignment data processing (SADP) methodology for un-synchronized data to evaluate the precision and accuracy of a positioning system (the Google Tango system); this location system is used to control beams of directional antennas for a 5th generation communication system using millimeter Wave (mmWave) links. The test mathematical model is described in details to derive the sampling alignment data processing. The SADP is used to evaluate the indoor and outdoor scenarios for the Google Tango position system, and we conclude that the Tango system precision is impacted by the tester’s behaviors, environment characteristics, and weather conditions. The evaluation results show the suitability of the Tango system as a location reporting system for our mmWave communication system.
