AbstractMobility tracking yields efficient network resource management and enables very useful additional services, provided that accurate online estimations of both the location and the velocity of a mobile user are performed. We present a novel method for tracing a mobile user by subsequently estimating his/her position through a single base station positioning (SBSP) method designed for microcellular and third generation (3G) wireless communications systems. Raw data about user position are then smoothed through a linear regression setup which adaptively varies its inertia on the basis of the previous observations. This results in a tracking method which is able to estimate both the location and the velocity of a user with high accuracy, as proven by numerical results obtained in different microcellular scenarios.
