A non-line-of-sight (NLOS) mitigation approach is presented for network-based mobile tracking. A distance smoothing method is proposed, which uses online line-of-sight (LOS) and NLOS identification. A technique is proposed to integrate distance, mobile velocity, and heading estimates for position determination through Kalman filtering. Hypothesis testing analysis is performed to provide a guideline for selecting the threshold values. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed approach significantly improves position accuracy as compared with the existing algorithms.
