In this paper, we investigate the performance of mobile vehicle positioning based on signal propagation delay estimation in the uplink case for a realistic propagation environment. In order to optimize the ranging performance, we introduce a parametric waveform. This waveform contains a scalar parameter for adjusting the distribution of the available signal power over the frequency. The optimization is achieved by a functional dependency between the waveform parameter and the positioning error. In order to derive a cost function, we combine the approaches of the Cramér-Rao and Ziv-Zakai bounds for position and propagation delay estimation. As an exemplary environment we consider a mobile vehicle located in an area surrounded by three base stations together with realistic propagation conditions provided by the WINNER II channel model. The results show that the waveform parameter has to be adjusted differently compared to a simple free space propagation scenario. Additionally, we compare the obtained results with a scenario with four base stations and a scenario where we use the WINNER II channel model in terms of line-of-sight received power and shadow fading to classify the effects of geometry and propagation conditions.
