Reflected Blessings
A technique developed by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign distinguishes a reflected non-line-of-sight (NLOS) signal of a particular satellite from the LOS signal and characterizes the NLOS signal as coming from a virtual mirror-image satellite in the direction of the signal reflection point. By using information on the position and orientation of the reflector, the NLOS signal can be treated as an additional LOS signal. Read more»
