Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR USE IN DETERMINING DETAILED LOCATIONS FOR CERTAIN ENTITIES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DESTINÉS À ÊTRE UTILISÉS DANS LA DÉTERMINATION D’EMPLACEMENTS DÉTAILLÉS POUR CERTAINES ENTITÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Exemplary embodiments of systems and methods are provided for determining detailed locations of entities, One exemplary method includes receiving at least one signal record for a communication device associated with a user. The at least one signal record includes multiple signal strengths, a temporal indicator, and an identifier unique to the communication device. The exemplary method further includes accessing multiple discrete event records associated with the entity, correlating one of the multiple discrete event records to the at least one signal record based on the temporal indicator included in the at least one signal record, and generating a location range associated with the entity, based on the signal strengths included in the at least one signal record, whereby a location of the entity, distinct from one or more other entities, is indicated by the location range.
(FR) Conformément à des modes de réalisation à titre d’exemple, la présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour déterminer des emplacements détaillés d’entités. Un procédé à titre d’exemple consiste à recevoir au moins un enregistrement de signal pour un dispositif de communication associé à un utilisateur. Le ou les enregistrements de signal comprennent multiples puissances de signal, un indicateur temporel, et un identifiant propre au dispositif de communication. Le procédé à titre d’exemple consiste en outre à accéder à multiples enregistrements d’événement distincts associés à l’entité, à mettre en corrélation l’un des multiples enregistrements d’événement distincts avec le ou les enregistrements de signal sur la base de l’indicateur temporel inclus dans le ou les enregistrements de signal, et à générer une plage d’emplacements associée à l’entité, sur la base des puissances de signal incluses dans le ou les enregistrements de signal, ce par quoi un emplacement de l’entité, distincte d’une ou plusieurs autres entités, est indiqué par la plage d’emplacements.
