Title: PEER DISCOVERY IN TRANSACTIONAL MOBILE APPLICATIONS
Abstract:
Embodiments of methods and apparatuses for peer discovery in transactional mobile applications are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method of peer discovery includes receiving from a server, at a first device, a meeting location and information for communication with a second device, obtaining a series of location data related to the second device, where the location data is based on a non-device-to-device positioning, determining whether to perform a direct device-to-device positioning with the second device using the meeting location and information for communication with the second device, performing a series of last-stretch direct device-to-device positioning measurements between the first device and the second device in response to a determination to perform the direct device-to-device positioning with the second device, and identifying the second device based on the series of last-stretch device-to-device positioning measurements between the first device and the second device.
