    Abstract

    IMES is an indoor messaging and positioning system. In the present work, three methods for improving the IMES transmitter are proposed based on the result of a radio acquisition analysis: Transmission diversity, a variable beamwidth antenna, and a leaky coaxial cable (LCX). The transmission diversity method increases the possibility of signal acquisition in areas with weak signal. A small-sized variable beamwidth antenna is developed to mitigate the multipath interference in narrow spaces. A field experiment with a LCX in an actual train setup is conducted to verify the effect of the LCX for the positioning of moving vehicles. The evaluation results of the proposed methods suggest their potential to be applied to practical applications.
