Positions estimation from Time of Arrival (TOA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA), and Angle of Arrival (AOA) measurements are the commonly used techniques. These approaches use the location parameters received from different sources and they are based on intersections of circles, hyperbolas, and lines, respectively. The location is determined using standard complex computation methods that are usually implemented in software and needed relatively long execution time. An important factor in achieving this is to minimize and simplify the instructions that the mobile station (MS) has to execute in the location determination process. Finding an effective location estimation technique to facilitate processing data is the main focuses in this paper. Therefore, in the wireless propagation environment the Received Signal Strength (RSS) information from three base stations (BSs) are recorded and processed and they can provide an overlapping coverage area of interest. Then an easy geometric technique is applied in order to effectively calculate the location of the desired MS.
