РЕФЕРАТ (Abstract)

A method of determining an initial position in executing a positioning calculation based on satellite signals from positioning satellites, includes: (a) executing position converging calculation based on the satellite signals using each of a plurality of first candidate positions as a provisional initial position; (b) selecting at least one second candidate position from the first candidate positions based on a calculation result of the position converging calculation; and (c) selecting the initial position from one of the second candidate positions using the satellite signals.

ФОРМУЛА ИЗОБРЕТЕНИЯ (CLAIMS)

What is claimed is:

1. A method for determining an initial position by a processor for calculating a position of a receiver which receives signals from a plurality of satellites, the method comprising: a) determining a first satellite based on the signals at the receiver; b) determining a plurality of candidate points based on an erroneous position at the receiver; c) determining a selected candidate point from the plurality of candidate points at the receiver; d) calculating a first difference between a first measured range and a first calculated range corresponding to the first satellite at the receiver; e) calculating second differences between a second measured range and a second calculated range corresponding to satellites other than the first satellite at the receiver; f) producing a value indicating validity of the selected candidate point using the first difference and the second differences at the receiver; g) repeating steps c) through f) to produce the value indicating validity of each of the plurality of candidate points at the receiver; h) selecting at least one reliable point from the plurality of candidate points using the value indicating validity of each of the candidate point to execute position converging calculation at the receiver; and i) determining the initial position based on the at least one reliable point at the receiver, wherein the step f) includes calculating the value indicating validity of the selected candidate point by accumulating a subtraction result between the first difference and the second differences.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein the erroneous position is a previous position of the receiver or a position information received from a base station.

3. The method of claim 1, wherein the first calculated range is a fractional part of range between the selected candidate point and the first satellite, and the second calculated range is a fractional part of range between the selected candidate point and the satellites other than the first satellite.

4. The method of claim 1, wherein the first measured range is derived from the signal received from the first satellite, and the second measured range is derived from the signal from at least one of the satellites other than the first satellite.

5. The method of claim 1, further comprising increasing the number of the candidate points as an ambiguity of the erroneous position grows.

6. The method of claim 1, wherein the step h) includes selecting a reliable point from the plurality of candidate points, where the reliable point has the least value indicating validity among the plurality of candidate points.
