  • Publication number: 20220286812
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for a network entity (NE) to optimize positioning of a user equipment, UE where the reliability of the positioning of a UE depends on static circumstances and situational/environmental circumstances. Static circumstances are the sensor capabilities and sensor quality related to the UE and general system limitations, and they remain the same regardless of the position of the UE. Situational or environmental circumstances depend on the situation or environment of the UE, and they change with the position and/or other physical states of the UE. The invention teaches that the NE request a quality report from a measurement unit (MU) to enable the MU to report on quality changes due to situational or environmental circumstances to the NE in order to enable the NE to decide on the best positioning method for the UE in the current situation.

  • Publication number: 20220196781
    Abstract: The embodiments herein relate to method performed by a radio network node, a network node, a method performed by a UE, a UE, a method performed by a location server and a location server. The method performed by the network node includes: transmitting at least one signal to other network nodes; detecting signals transmitted from said other network nodes; measuring the signal strength of each received signal; transforming said measured signal strengths into a reference point or into measurement data; and transferring or transmitting the reference point or the measurement data to a location entity or a location node or a location server in the network.

  • Publication number: 20200374656
    Abstract: A transceiver for a wireless communication system is configured to: communicate with at least one other transceiver of the system using a sidelink resource pool of the system; transmit signals on resources of the pool that are allocated to the transceiver on a period basis with equal length periods tperiodA; transmit a first signal on a first resource of the resources allocated to the transceiver, and receive a second signal from another transceiver of the system on a second resource, the second signal being transmitted by the other transceiver responsive to a reception of the first signal, the second signal being transmitted by the other transceiver on the second resource using the period tperiodA based on which the resources are allocated to the transceiver; determine a distance to the other transceiver based on a time troundA between the transmission of the first signal and the reception of the second signal from the other transceiver, and based on the period tperiodA based on which the resources are alloc
