Abstract

This paper attempts to present current state in the area of user localization in cellular networks and shows custom solution for positioning using pocket computer and fingerprint method also known as fingerprinting. It operates in Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) network, although fingerprinting is also applicable in other wireless networks, such as Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), Bluetooth or 802.11. Implementation is explained and it is compared to existing solutions. The performance of the system is evaluated for various scenarios by statistical characteristics and Circular Error Probability (CEP). The scenarios are proposed from observation of various parameters that influence the localization accuracy.
