Interference Effect on the Performance of Fingerprinting Localization

        With the abundance of mobile connected devices and coexisting networks, localization solutions are inevitably subject to interference. In this paper, effects of interference on the performance of Fingerprinting Localization Algorithms (FPS) are studied both theoretically and through experimentation. The previously introduced theoretical framework based on Hypothesis Testing (HT) problem is employed to characterize the perfor- mance of FPS and provide guidelines for combating negative impact of interference. In particular, it is shown that background interference interestingly can improve the performance of FPS, while the interference in the measurement phase incurs an error by pushing the reported location closer to the anchors. Moreover, the anchors provide the highest interference robustness for locations in their proximity. These results are further verified through simulations and experimentation in realistic setups.
