2009 Proceedings of the 7th international conference on Mobile systems, applications, and services - Mobisys '09  
This is in contrast to the mere steering of narrow beams used in conventional smart antenna systems.  ...  For tractability at vehicular speeds, our R2D2 system searches through a limited set of beam patterns with different numbers of lobes, and includes a two-stage algorithm that uses both runtime adaptation  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank all the anonymous reviewers for their very useful comments. Many thanks to Rajesh Mahindra for all the help during experiments.  ...

Drive-By Localization of Roadside WiFi Networks

A. P. Subramanian, P. Deshpande, J. Gao, S. R. Das
2008 2008 Proceedings IEEE INFOCOM - The 27th Conference on Computer Communications  
We use a steerable beam directional antenna mounted on a moving vehicle to localize roadside WiFi access points (APs), located outdoors or inside buildings.  ...  The idea is to estimate the angle of arrival of frames transmitted from the AP using signal strength information on different directional beams of the antenna -as the beam continuously rotates while the  ...  MOBISTEER uses a steerable beam directional antenna with a WiFi (802.11b/g) client node mounted on a moving car.  ...
