An approach using support vector regression for mobile location in cellular networks

Abstract

Wireless positioning systems have become very popular in recent years. One of the reasons is the fact that the use of a new paradigm named Internet of Things has been increasing in the scenario of wireless communications. Since a high demand for accurate positioning in wireless networks has become more intensive, especially for location-based services, the investigation of mobile positioning using radiolocalization techniques is an open research problem. Based on this context, we propose a fingerprinting approach using support vector regression to estimate the position of a mobile terminal in cellular networks. Simulation results indicate the proposed technique has a lower error distance prediction and is less sensitive to a Rayleigh distributed noise than the fingerprinting techniques based on COST231 and ECC-33 propagation models. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.
