Bishop, Adrian, Fidan, Barıs, Anderson, Brian, Dogancay, Kutluyıl and Pathirana, Pubudu 2007, Optimality analysis of sensor-target geometries in Passive localization: Part 1 - bearing-only localization, in Proceedings of the 2007 Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks & Information Processing Conference, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Piscataway, N.J., pp. 7-12.
In this paper we characterize the relative sensor-target geometry for bearing-only localization in R2. We analyze the geometry in terms of the Cramer-Rao inequality and the corresponding Fisher information matrix, aiming to characterize and state explicit results in terms of the potential localization performance. In particular, a number of interesting results are rigorously derived which highlight erroneous assumptions often made in the existing literature.
