Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15.1) systems operating in medium to large sized rooms can suffer multipath distortion, which may be compounded by presence of frequency offsets permitted by the bluetooth standart. Frequency errors can undermine common training based equalisation techniques. This paper establishes the effect of severe multipath indoor propagation and frequency errors on bluetooth receiver, and demonstrate the effectiveness of the constant modulus algotihm in performing channel equalisation when a frequency offset exist. A stochastic gradient based algorithm for frequency correction is also introduced and assessed.
