Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR WIRELESS NETWORK HYBRID POSITIONING
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE POSITIONNEMENT HYBRIDE DE RESEAU SANS FIL
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatuses for position determination and other operations. In one embodiment of the present invention, a mobile station uses wireless signals from a plurality of wireless networks (e.g., with different air interfaces and/or operated by different service providers) for position determination (e.g., for data communication, for obtaining time and/or frequency information, for range measurement, for sector or altitude estimation). In one embodiment of the present invention, mobile stations are used to harvest statistical data about wireless access points (e.g., the locations of mobile stations that have received signals from the wireless access points, such as from cellular base stations, wireless local area network access points, repeaters for positioning signals, or other wireless communication transmitters) and to derive location information (e.g., position and coverage area of the wireless access points) for the wireless networks from the collected statistical data.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des appareils permettant de déterminer une position et d'effectuer d'autres opérations. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, une station mobile utilise des signaux sans fil provenant d'une pluralité de réseaux sans fil (par exemple, avec différentes interfaces aériennes et/ou alimentés par différents fournisseurs de services) afin de déterminer une position (par exemple, pour communiquer des données, obtenir des informations temporelles et/ou de fréquence, mesurer une plage ou estimer un secteur ou une altitude). Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, des stations mobiles sont utilisées pour collecter des données statistiques relatives à des points d'accès sans fil (par exemple, les localisations des stations mobiles ayant reçus des signaux provenant des points d'accès sans fil, tels que celles provenant de stations cellulaires de base, de points d'accès de réseaux locaux, de répéteurs permettant de positionner des signaux ou d'autres émetteurs-récepteurs de communications sans fil); et pour dériver des informations de localisation (par exemple, position et zone de couverture des points d'accès sans fil) pour des réseaux sans fil à partir des données statistiques collectées.
