|Abstract: ||Ever since humans first started travelling, people have developed technologies to locate
their position. Today locating a mobile device is considered easy, thanks for the
remarkable location technology developed by US military called GPS. GPS has become the standard for location technology. But now it is time to look beyond GPS technology.
It is time to look in to technologies that is affordable to every one, like mobile cellular telephone system.
Mobile phone service is a service that is affordable to every one. Similar to GPS, mobile phone also uses electromagnetic waves to communicate. Mobile phone industry is a
potentially huge market and service like location service not only benefits the users but also generate huge revenue to the networks. This research concentrates on providing a cheap solution to implement and provide location service in mobile phone.
An in-depth study of location technologies and its possible services has been carried
out. The proposed solution has been developed by concentrating on the needs of
reducing the cost of implementing location service. Developed solution is based on
signal strength which is already available in the network. This solution propose method
of using propagation models to find the distance between mobile user and the base
station and use triangulation method to calculate the location. It also propose a location processing model which gives an improved result compared with Time advance and cell sector. This thesis also proposes methods of implementing location service in the network including the methods of presenting location service in the mobile devices.
An experimental investigation was carried out to find out the reliability of location
technology proposed. It is shown that proposed location method can be used in most of the location service. Accuracy of the location technology proposed shows improved
results and can cater old and new handsets. It is also noted that the proposed methods of
providing location service will minimise the cost of implementing location technology.|
