This paper presents an introductory yet comprehensive study of the combined signal and geometrical properties of Indoor Positioning Systems (IPSs) based on ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. These IPSs consist of a network of more than three transmitting anchors and a (tagged) single receiving object to be localised. The specific algorithm used in this paper is the Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA) with round-robin scheduling. The analysis is structured in a systematic manner in order to lay the foundations for the optimal number, location and orientation of anchors aiming for maximum precision, and also for maximum size of the working area with a desired prescribed precision.
