The proposed system differs from previously proposed hybrid systems in several ways - the mobile devices determines its own position, the consequent orientation problem is solved and the system uses spread spectrum techniques to improve robustness to noise and multipath. The system uses an inclinometer to allow the mobile to determine its own position. This paper compares the performance of the proposed hybrid system with that of a conventional ToA- only system. The hybrid system is found to reduce the number of base stations needed for 3D location of the mobile device, from three to two, and to provide more accurate location estimates under conditions of typical noise and room reverberation.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||IEEE||Copyright (published version):||2007 IEEE||Keywords:||Spread spectrum;Time of arrival;Angle of arrival;Image method;Ultrasonic;Location systems||DOI:||10.1109/WISP.2007.4447607||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Signal Processing (WISP), Madrid, Spain, 3 - 5 October, 2007|
