New Trends in Radio Network Positioning

Positioning in radio networks is a well establishedresearch area. The dominating approach has been that positioningalgorithms are implemented in the higher levels of the communicationsystem based on position related information derivedin the lowest (physical) layer. Examples of measurement includereceived signal strength (RSS), time of arrival (TOA), angleof arrival (AOA), and fusion and filtering is a straightforwardtask. The technical driver for positioning has been E911 andfor commercially driver comes from location based services andlogistics management. These demands are fundamental in thedevelopment of positioning in future radio networks standards.There is today a trend for accuracy demand that goes beyondwhat can be achieved with todays measurements. Another trendis that measurements and positioning algorithms are approachingeach other, so some parts of the positioning are performed on thechip-sets (lowest layer) and low-level measurements are availableto the operating system (highest level). The purpose of thissurvey is to describe this trend in more detail, with examples ofdevelopments in cellular networks as well as WiFi and Bluetooth.
