Low complexity TOA estimator for multiuser DS-UWB system

Abstract : In this paper, we present a low complexity Time Of Arrival (TOA) estimator for direct-sequence ultra-wideband (DS-UWB) ranging system. With the assumption that TOA is the integer multiples of chip duration, our decoupled multiuser ranging (DEMR) estimator employs integrate-and-dump filter (IDF) in chip sampling rate instead of matched filter (MF) as the front-end to reduce sampling rate and to simplify the structure of estimator. This subsampling estimator is simplified substantially in dense multipath environment furthermore due to the long repetition time of DS-UWB pulse. Simulation results show that compared with other low complexity TOA estimator, DEMR estimator is not only quite near-far resistant, but also can obtain noticeable ranging performance in the fully loaded system.
