We present a computationally efficient scheme for multiple source location estimation based on the EM Algorithm. The proposed scheme is optimal in the sense that it converges iteratively to the exact Maximum Likelihood estimate for all the unknown parameters simultaneously. The method can be applied to a wide range of problems arising in signal and array processing.

EM Algorithm f(xj˚) is a family of sampling densities, and g(yj˚) = Z F 1(y) f(xj˚) dx The EM algorithm aims to nd a ˚that maximizes g(yj˚) given an observed y, while making essential use of f(xj˚) Each iteration includes two steps: The expectation step (E-step) uses current estimate of the parameter to nd (expectation of) complete dataFile Size: KB. David Munoz, Rogerio Enriquez, in Position Location Techniques and Applications, Centroid Algorithm. Position estimation algorithms that do not use any type of signal measurement to infer range or AOA information between a land reference and an NOI are usually referred to as range-free schemes. The centroid algorithm, proposed in Bulusu et al. [1], falls into this category.

Tracking of Multiple Moving Sources Using Recursive EM Algorithm estimation of multiple moving sources. Based on the recursive EM algorithm, we develop two recursive procedures to esti-mate the time-varying DOA parameter for narrow band signals. The ﬁrst procedure requires no prior knowledge about the source movement. The second procedure. K-means algorithm can get stuck easily in local minima. – Select good seeds using a heuristic (e.g., object least similar to any existing mean) – Try out multiple starting points (very important!!!) – Initialize with the results of another method.

In statistics, an expectation–maximization (EM) algorithm is an iterative method to find maximum likelihood or maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimates of parameters in statistical models, where the model depends on unobserved latent EM iteration alternates between performing an expectation (E) step, which creates a function for the expectation of the log-likelihood evaluated using.DEMPSTER et al.
