Problems solved by technology
Embodiments of the disclosed subject matter provide a method of integrating a WLAN-based positioning system (WLAN PS) and a cellular-based positioning system (CPS) to create a hybrid positioning system. An integrated or hybrid system refers to a system which inputs the measurements and location estimates from one system to another system before location estimate to improve the accuracy of the positioning and velocity and bearing estimates, and the accuracy of expected error estimate, as compared to each individual system working independently. The method of integrating a WLAN PS and CPS to create a hybrid positioning system can add CPS final estimates as another input to WLAN PS and WLAN PS final estimations as another input to CPS. In one embodiment, raw CPS measurements and raw WLAN PS measurements also can be integrated to select the best set of measurement to increase the accuracy of position estimate and HPE.
