Abstract: INTRODUCTIONThis paper addresses the problem of planar homing guidance, where a vehicle travels toward a stationary beacon using a spatially quantized signal strength measurement. Here, the term spatially quantized signal strength measurement describes a signal strength measurement that takes discrete values as a function of range, i.e., vehicle-beacon relative position. Quantized signals occur in digital communication systems, such as those between Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) and ground stations, where the …
