Three bias estimation frameworks are presented that mitigate position-dependent ranging errors often present in ultra-wideband localization systems. State estimation and control are integrated, such that the positioning accuracy improves over iterations. The frameworks are experimentally evaluated on a quadcopter platform. Two state augmentation...
