Abstract
In this paper, we have investigated the use of virtual antenna arrays at the receiver to do single antenna direction-of-arrival estimation. The array coordinates are obtained by doing simple dead reckoning using acceleration and angular speed measurements from a low cost micro-electro-mechanical system inertial measurement unit (IMU). The proposed solution requires no extra hardware in terms of receiver chains and antenna elements. Direction-of-arrival estimation results are obtained using a high resolution SAGE algorithm. Measurement results show that the direction-of-arrival can be estimated with a reasonable accuracy in an indoor environment.
