Accurate location tracking of mobile stations in cellular radio networks is of tremendous interest for many applications. In this work, we analyze the performance of a speed and location tracking algorithm using data from a field trial. The algorithm fits received signal strengths of surrounding base stations to corresponding predictions. These raw location estimates, in GSM available each 0.48 s, are subsequently smoothed by a model-based Kalman filter. An essential ingredient of our method is… CONTINUE READING
