Moreover, the LOS signals often have higher carrier-to-noise ratio (i.e., C/[N.sub.0]) than the NLOS and multipath signals [29].
Based on the discussions above, the fuzzy calibration logic (FCL) here is designed using three inputs, that is, the azimuth difference [[theta].sub.i] between the received ith satellite and the vehicle, the elevation angle [[gamma].sub.i] of the received ith satellite, and the carrier-to-noise ratio [P.sub.i] (i.e., C/[N.sub.0]) and one output, the scaling coefficient [[mu].sub.i], which is used to adjust the pseudorange measurement noise level.
Figure 4 shows the number of received satellites whose elevation angle and carrier-to-noise ratio are more than 35[degrees] and 30 db-Hz, respectively.
