  • Patent number: 11012800
    Abstract: A correction system and a correction method of signal measurement are provided. In the method, a transmitted signal and a received signal are divided into a plurality of transmitted signal groups and a plurality of received signal groups according to a time length, respectively. The received signal is related to a signal received after the transmitted signal is transmitted, and the transmitted signal is a periodic signal. A plurality of to-be-evaluated groups are selected from the received signal groups according to a correlation between the transmitted signal groups and the received signal groups. The correlation corresponds to a delay between the transmitted signal and the received signal. The signal energy of the received signal is determined according to the signal energy of the to-be-evaluated groups. Accordingly, the accuracy of signal measurement can be improved.
