Abstract
(EN)
Aspects of the disclosure provide methods for positioning transmitting stations, such as cell towers. Further, aspects of the disclosure provide a database for storing information of the transmitting stations. In addition, aspects of the disclosure provide methods for positioning a moving object having a receiver based on the database of the transmitting stations and wireless signals transmitted by the transmitting stations. The methods increase in-transit location visibility of shipment while reducing GNSS usage, and thus reduce power consumption. The methods allow positioning receiving stations when GNSS signals may not be available, such as due to interference.

La présente invention concerne, selon certains aspects, des procédés permettant de positionner des stations émettrices, telles que des stations de base. En outre, l'invention utilise, selon certains aspects, une base de données pour mémoriser des informations des stations émettrices. En outre, l'invention utilise, selon certains aspects, des procédés permettant de positionner un objet mobile comportant un récepteur sur la base de la base de données des stations émettrices et de signaux sans fil émis par les stations émettrices. Les procédés augmentent la visibilité d'emplacement lors du transit tout en réduisant l'utilisation du GNSS (système mondial de navigation par satellite), et réduisent ainsi la consommation d'énergie. Les procédés permettent de positionner les stations réceptrices lorsque les signaux GNSS risquent de ne pas être disponibles, notamment en raison d'interférences.
