Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions for wireless location estimation are likely to prevail in many real-world scenarios. In this work, we demonstrate for the first time how the Cramer-Rao upper bound on localization accuracy can facilitate efficient neural-network solutions for wireless location estimation. In particular, we demonstrate how the number of neurons for the network can be intelligently chosen, leading to AI location solutions that are not time-consuming to run and less likely to be plagued by over-fitting. Experimental verification of our approach is provided. Our new algorithms are directly applicable to location estimates in many scenarios including the Internet of Things, and vehicular networks where vehicular GPS coordinates are unreliable or need verifying. Our work represents the first successful AI solution for a communication problem whose neural-network design is based on fundamental information-theoretic constructs. We anticipate our approach will be useful for a wide range of communication problems beyond location estimation.
