Title: TIME OF ARRIVAL (TOA) MEASUREMENTS
Abstract:
There is provided a method (120) and/or an apparatus for time of arrival, TOA, measurements. One method comprises: performing (122), at a sample resolution, a correlation process on a received measurement signal (132) to obtain a measurement correlation function (136); determining (124) a peak sample (140) and correlation data (142) of at least one additional sample preceding and/or following the peak sample (140) in the measurement correlation function (136); determining (126) a TOA and/or distance (154) on the basis of the peak sample (140) and correction data (152) obtained by at least the correlation data (142) of the at least one additional sample preceding and/or following the peak sample (140) and pre-assigned configuration data (150) associated to the transmission channel obtained at a subsample resolution.
