Positioning, or locating, devices using wireless signals such as global positioning system (GPS) has become a ubiquitous technology in today’s world. We regularly rely on positioning systems to tell us how to drive somewhere, where to catch the train, and how to get to the closest restaurant. While many of these daily applications of positioning systems use GPS (or other satellite systems), cellular systems have also provided positioning services for over a decade now (e.g., in 3G and 4G). 5G New Radio (NR) is no different and due to the ever increasing bandwidths of cellular systems and other improvements in cellular technologies there has been a recent increase in research activity, in academia and industry, for cellular based positioning technology.
