The algorithm processes the sampled baseband signal to obtain a high resolution estimate of the TOA of the OFDM symbol. In the first step, the algorithm obtains a sample resolution estimate of the TOA by finding the peak of the absolute value of the cross-correlation of the in-phase and quadrature received signals with the known transmitted symbol. In the second step, the algorithm refines this estimate to sub-sample resolution by estimating the phase delay of the received signal based on the gradient of a linear fit to the phase difference between the transmitted and received sub-carriers (in the frequency domain). The algorithm was applied to the Long Training Sequence (LTS) symbol of the IEEE Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) 802.11g preamble. In real-world experiments, the algorithm was found to achieve a mean TOA estimation error of 49 cm in a low multi-path Line Of Sight (LOS) environment for ranges of 1-7 m.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET)||Copyright (published version):||2014 Institute of Engineering and Technology||Keywords:||Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM);Time Of Arrival (TOA);Altorithms||DOI:||10.1049/el.2014.3677||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
