In this paper, a hybrid positioning method based on global optimization for difference of convex functions (D.C.) with time of arrival (TOA) and angle of arrival (AOA) measurements are proposed. Traditional maximum likelihood (ML) formulation for indoor localization is a nonconvex optimization problem. The relaxation methods can?t provide a global solution. We establish a D.C. model for TOA/AOA fusion positioning model and give a solution with a global optimization. Simulations based on TC-OFDM signal system show that the proposed method is efficient and more robust as compared to the existing ML estimation and convex relaxation.
