It is notable that the Silverman's rule may not perform well in our case of robust TOA localization - other kernel width update strategy should be considered.

"CIM" in the paragraph next to Fig. 3 should be "correntropy measure".

The definition of matrix $\bm{D}$ is incorrect. Should be $\bm{D} = \left[ -\bm{1}_{L-1}, \bm{I}_{(L-1)\times (L-1)} \right] \in \mathbb{R}^{(L-1) \times L}$ instead.

In the third line of (3), $\lambda_{2L-1+i}$ should be moved to the outside of the curly bracket.

In the sentence before (3), "by substituting $\bm{e}$ held in the Lagrangian neurons with $\bm{u}$" should be removed.

Expression of $\ell_2$-norm in the definition of RMSE on page 9 should be modified for consistency.

In the smoothed robust loss on page 4, $\ln$ should be $\log$ instead.

  • Biography


Mr. Xiong was raised in Wuhan, China. He received the B.Eng. degree in electrical engineering and automation from Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China, in 2017, and the M.Sc. degree in electronic information engineering from the City University of Hong Kong, HKSAR, China, in 2018. He is currently pursuing the Dr. rer. nat. degree with the University of Freiburg, Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, under the supervision of Prof. C. Schindelhauer, Chair of Computer Networks and Telematics (CoNe). His research interests lie broadly in the fields of localization, robust estimation, optimization, and deep learning.

From October 2018 to June 2019, he was a Research Assistant with the Department of Electrical Engineering, City University of Hong Kong. From July 2019 to September 2020, He worked as a Scientific Staff at CoNe.

Mr. Xiong serves as a Reviewer for various international journals, including but not limited to IEEE Transactions on Information TheorySignal Processing, and IEEE Signal Processing Letters.
