Abstract

This paper reports a comparative study of different Direction of Arrival (DOA) estimation methods and application of adaptive beam forming for target detection and tracking. DOA algorithms such as Beamscan, Minimum variance distortion less response (MVDR), Multiple Signal Classifier (MUSIC), root-MUSIC, Estimation of signal parameters via rotational invariance (ESPRIT) have been investigated, with initial data obtained from Received Signal Strength (RSS) measurement in a Wi-Fi environment. Location estimation using root-MUSIC and ESPRIT algorithms have been carried out for a moving target. Optimum combination for best performance is identified. Simulations have been carried out in MATLAB tool.
