Positioning and Technologies for Mobility

Course: Positioning and Technologies for Mobility

Code: 3ФЕИТ10024

ECTS points: 6 ECTS

Number of classes per week: 3+0+0+3

Lecturer: Asst. Prof. Dr. Slavche Pejoski

Course Goals (acquired competencies): The first objective of the course is to provide basic understanding of the concepts of positioning, navigation and communication systems for smart mobility. The second objective of the course is to provide abilities for development of applications based on positioning in intelligent transport systems.

Course Syllabus: Overview of location-based services.  Basics of localization: parameters and measurements, infrastructures and protocols, spatial-temporal reference systems, positioning methods. Localization processing: navigation equations, algorithms for solution nad accuracy.  Technologies and systems:  Terrestrial radio-localization systems: positioning in  cellular positioning (GSM, UMTS) and in short-range systems for indoor positioning (WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, UWB, RF-ID). Satellite systems: GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, Beidou/Compass, signals and spreading codes, navigation message, receiver structure. Introduction to intelligent transport systems (ITS): architecture and elements, technologies, examples and applications. Software tools and platforms for implementation of ITS. Utilization of location based services in mobility based applications. Traffic monitoring: sensors and communication systems for identification or counting of vehicles/passengers/equipment, probe vehicles and floating car data, fleet management, electronic toll collection, on demand transport ordering.  Fundamentals of traffic modeling and control.  Overview of communication technologies for transportation and safety: cellular, satellite, dedicated short-range communications, vehicle-to-vehicle/vehicle-to-infrastructure communications, communication systems for signaling and control.
