Summary: 
This letter proposes a new positioning method for WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) systems based on a principle of the RTK-GPS (Real Time Kinematic-Global Positioning System). The proposed method collects observations of the carrier phase at access points for a double phase difference of the RTK-GPS. We show a numerical example for evaluations of the proposed method considering the measurement error by computer simulations.
