In 2000, the Signal Processing and Speech Communication Laboratory (SPSC Lab) of Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) was founded as a research and education center in nonlinear signal processing and computational intelligence, algorithm engineering, as well as circuits & systems modeling and design. It covers applications in wireless communications, speech/audio communication, and telecommunications.

Reliability and Threshold-Region Performance of TOA Estimators in Dense Multipath Channels [link]

This work, we investigate the reliability of time-of-arrival (TOA) based ranging using maximum-likelihood (ML) estimation in a dense multipath (DM) channel in terms of both the conventional mean squared error (MSE) as well as confidence bounds. We show that in the presence of DM the ML estimator distorts the signal mainlobe due to its whitening property, resulting in a bandwidth (BW) dependent bias, even before the outlier driven threshold region is reached.
