In wireless positioning, estimating the location of a receiver is very challenging since the receiver does not transmit signals. The difficulty is to obtain the distance between the anchors and the silent receiver. To deal with the issue, this paper proposes to use the full-duplex relay technique to estimate the anchor-receiver distance. Then, we can obtain the location of the silent receiver. With the proposed method, the location-aware applications are not limited to the conventional transmitter positioning. Instead, they can be extended to the receiver positioning. Simulation results demonstrate the performance of the proposed method.
