Ubiquitous Location Sensing: Understanding AoA and AoD

Pinpointing location in real time is complex for many reasons. A building’s infrastructure, such as concrete walls and floors and steel support beams often interferes with or blocks wireless signals, which makes determining location with any consistent level of accuracy difficult. Two new methodologies within the direction finding feature are helping to mitigate these losses and overcome the complexity, improving location capabilities: Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD). These two location system architectures utilize angular direction estimation to determine positioning.
