A low-complexity high-accuracy algorithm is proposed to estimate the location of a target MS based on network-side time-of-arrival (TOA) measurements. Under a factor graph framework, the proposed algorithm first constructs a graphical model for the mobile position location problem by dividing the problem into many mutually-interactive local constraints. Each local constraint is enforced by a separate local processing unit. Efficient exchange of soft-information among local processing units in the mobile switching center (MSC) then iteratively purifies the estimate of the MS location. Numerical results show that the proposed algorithm not only enjoys low complexity, suitable for integrated-circuit implementation, but it is also able to achieve performance very close to the optimum achievable solution accuracy, the maximum likelihood (ML) solution accuracy
