What is the difference between TDoA and ToF methods?

ToF – time-of-flight, sometimes called ToA – time-of-arrival.
TDoA – Time difference of arrival.

Both the ToF and TDoA methods rely on measuring the time it takes for the radio waves to travel a certain distance in the air. The difference between ToF and TDoA lies in the distances we actually measure and how we use them to calculate the position of the tag.
