|1. (WO2017034348) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ESTIMATING POSITION IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM|
|Applicants:||SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD.
|Title:||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ESTIMATING POSITION IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM|
The present disclosure relates to a communication technique for combining a 5G communication system for supporting a higher data transmission rate than a 4G system with an IoT technology, and a system therefor. The present disclosure can be applied to 5G communication technology and IoT related technology-based intelligent services (for example, smart homes, smart buildings, smart cities, smart cars or connected cars, health care, digital education, retail businesses, security and safety related services, etc.). A method in which a transmitter estimates a position in a communication system according to an embodiment of the present disclosure comprises the steps of: transmitting, to a receiver, a magnetic field signal generated from a single coil included in the transmitter; and receiving, from the receiver, position information estimated on the basis of a received signal strength of the magnetic field signal.
