ABSTRACT
The article provides updates on the latest advancements in assisted-Global Positioning System (A-GPS) technology. It states that enhancements in A-GPS have enabled improved positioning indoors, but GPS receivers are still not sensitive enough to determine position everywhere a user goes. It explores alternatives on how to resolve the said problem which include GNSS, Wi-Fi and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
