Tech Deep-Dive (3/3): localization methods in 3D

Having considered localization in practice, we now extend in-plane localization to include a dimension for position determination in space. First, we will specifically highlight the challenges in determining z-coordinates and show ways to overcome them. We will then illustrate the transition of ToF circles into spheres and TDoA hyperbolas into hyperboloids.
