Locating Mobile Users Using Base Stations of Cellular Networks

The location of mobile users served by cellular networks is considered. The chosen approach assumes that location is estimated through angular triangulation with three Base Stations (BSs). New estimates are proposed, which are described by closed-form expressions, and are alternatives to the maximum likelihood estimate. It is shown that the accuracy of the estimate coinciding within circle center of the bearing triangle is close to the accuracy of the maximum likelihood estimate. There is significant interest in location technologies in wireless networks.
