Improved Taylor-Series Expansion for MS Location Estimation
The objective of wireless location is to determine the mobile station (MS) location in a wireless cellular communications system. Due to the measurement with large errors, location schemes give poorer performance in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) environments. To determine MS location, Taylor-series algorithm (TSA) is commonly used scheme. TSA can give a least-square (LS) solution to a set of simultaneous linearized equations. The disadvantage of TSA is the need for an initial position guess to start the solution process. The iteration process may not converge due to a poor initial estimate of the MS location. To improve the location accuracy with less complexity, the initial MS location selection criterion is proposed. Numerical results demonstrate that the proposed criterion always provides more accurate positioning.
