5G Location-Based Services Training, 5G Geo-Information Engineering

5G Location-Based Services Training is a 2-day training cover 5G Location-Based Services (LBS) and 5G Geo-Information Engineering topics.

5G Location-Based Services (LBS) are the delivery of data and information services where the content of those services is tailored to the current location and context of a 5G mobile user, an IoT device or an autonomous vehicle.

Participants will learn about technologies for 5G mobile and cellular network localization. In principle, any signal propagating in a 5G wireless environment intrinsically conveys position-dependent information that can be exploited for localization. Participants will also learn about Geo-Information (GI) Engineering and 5G engineered solutions to use of geographical information and underpins applications such as LBS.

Such a position-dependent information can be extracted from measurements of signal metrics such as received signal strength (RSS), time-of-arrival (TOA), angle-of-arrival (AOA), phase, or combinations of them, depending on the radio technology. One or multiple receivers compute signal measurements with respect to one or multiple reference transmitters, and then infer the position by means of a localization algorithm.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers, software design engineers, analysts, managers, and employees with little or no 5G Location-Based Services or 5G Geo-Information Engineering topics experience. The course is also useful for those who have experience with 5G LBS and  Geo-Information Engineering but have never had any formal training.
