Enhancement of Wireless Positioning in Outdoor Suburban NLOS Environment Using Hybrid-Network-GPS Systems
This paper will introduce a method for locating Mobile Stations (MSs) in outdoor suburban Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) environment. The measurements used to locate the MS are taken from three base stations and a satellite. Such a setup of measurements is named the hybrid-network-GPS system. The proposed method uses constraint nonlinear optimization to minimize the NLOS error. The problem is simplified to three independent nonlinear equations of three unknowns, then it is solved to find the MS location. Numerical simulations are introduced to assess the performance of the proposed method compared with other positioning algorithms.
