A Field Study on Terrestrial and Satellite Location Sources for Urban Cellular Networks
— This work presents a statistical field study of the availability of time sources for location in a true wireless network. Terrestrial (base stations) and satellite (GPS) sources were investigated in three different urban scenarios. The density function of a specific number of sources available for triangulation is presented along with other statistical data in order to assess coverage. Since the fusion of terrestrial and satellite sources to obtain the location in wireless networks has been proposed as a way of improving coverage, the joint density function and cross-correlation between the availability of both types of sources are also presented. This correlation depends on the scenario, leading to the conclusion that the improvement obtained through the fusion of sources depends on both the fusion type and the scenario. Keywords– GPS; location; coverage; hybridization; cellular network; field study.
