Moving Target Localization Based on Multi-sensor Distance Estimation

Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 135)


Based on the results of a number of single-sensor distance estimates, this paper presents how to calculate the actual position of the flight target based on multi-sensor distance estimates. The time 0 unification issue of estimation model for each sensor is solved. The goal that the sensors need to use acoustic signals that target emitted in the same location but received by different sensors, this article gives the corresponding solution.
