Abstract

A method, system and computer program product for tracking a mobile device. A reference position of the mobile device and a frequency offset between the mobile device and another device are estimated. Samples are then fetched at various frequencies from the receivers. The fetched signals are mixed with a pseudo transmitted signal. A relative distance between the mobile device and the other device is computed based on a change in frequency of the mixed signal at a current location, a velocity of the mobile device and the estimated frequency offset. An absolute distance between the mobile device and the other device is determined using the reference position and the computed relative distance. A location of the mobile device is then determined based on the mobile device's velocity and the determined absolute difference.
