WHERE – Wireless Hybrid Enhanced Mobile Radio Estimators

The main objective of WHERE is to combine wireless communications and navigation for the benefit of future mobile radio systems. The impact will be manifold, such as real time localization knowledge in B3G/4G systems which increase the cellular capacity. GPS as well as the upcoming European Satellite Navigation System Galileo will be supplemented with techniques that improve accuracy and availability of indoor navigation and location based service coverage.

To enable ubiquitous mobile network access and to increase data rates, scientific and technological development is more and more focusing on the integration of radio access networks (RANs). This allows an efficient use even if the radio access technology behind such networks is dynamically changing. The knowledge of the position of mobile terminals is for an efficient usage of RANs valuable information in order to allocate resources or even to predict the allocation within a heterogeneous RAN infrastructure.

WHERE is an international project co-funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme. The project team comprises the following organizations:
German Aerospace Center (DLR) - lead, Aalborg University, ACORDE, Commissariat à L’Énergie Atomique - LETI, Institut Eurécom, Siradel, Université de Rennes 1, Instituto Telecomunicações, Mitsubishi Electric ITE, Sigint Solutions Ltd., University of Surrey, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, University of Alberta, City University of Hong Kong.
