M. Arenas, A. Podhorski, J. Goya, S. Arrizabalaga, L. Zamora, J. Mendizabal. “Implementation and validation of an Angle of Arrival (AoA) determination system for on-board positioning.“ 6th European Transport Research Conference (TRA2016). Narodowy, Warsaw, Poland - 18-21 April 2016. Accepted.

* Abstract

This paper presents the implementation of an Angle of Arrival (AoA) estimation algorithm using FPGA technology as a part of a Smart Train Positioning System (STPS). The STPS takes advantage of the combination of different technologies and techniques, such as GNSS and the AoA of the GSM-R signals, to determine the real time train position. Furthermore, a complete software AoA system simulator has been implemented and used to validate the implementation of the AoA algorithm in the FPGA.
