Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR USE IN POSITIONING SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A system and method for use in time synchronization of a plurality of receiver units are described. The method comprising: providing a plurality of receiver units arranged in preselected locations within a region of interest and at least one reference transmitter unit, said reference transmitter unit is configured and operable for transmitting synchronization messages; receiving readout time of said at least one reference transmitter at time of transmission of a synchronization message, and readout time of one or more of the receiver units upon receiving said synchronization message; processing the received data on readout time and determining one or more synchronization functions for transformation between time provided by each of said plurality of receiver units to time as provided by the reference transmitter providing synchronization link between time readout of said one or more receiver units and time readout of said reference transmitter; and storing in a storage unit, data indicative of a plurality of synchronization functions for transformation of time readouts of the receiver units to time readout of said at least one reference transmitter, thereby enabling time synchronization with respect to readout time of said at least reference transmitter.
