Abstract
Technology has created a new world of smart mobility with the objective
of satisfying human needs with more functionality. This research work is
about how to create a 3D localization system using the Angle of Arrival (AoA)
technique, combined with Wi-Fi technology and motorized directional antennas.
Our objective is to locate an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that is driven with
the help of a smart network of directional antennas. The mini UAV will automatically
follow a planned route around an object, using Wi-Fi smart techniques.
Our results show that a network of smart antennas can be used to locate a UAV
with high precision.
