Consistency-Based On-line Localization in Sensor Networks
Abstract. We have developed a new on-line error modeling and optimizationbased localization approach for sensor networks in the presence of distance measurement noise. The approach is solely based on the concept of consistency, and is developed specifically for the case of on-line localization, which refers to the situation when references are not available a priori. The localization problem is formulated as the task of maximizing the consistency between measurements and calculated distances. In addition, we also present a localized localization algorithm where a specified communication cost or the location accuracy is guaranteed while optimizing the other. We evaluated the approach in (i) both GPS-based and GPS-less scenarios; (ii) 1-D, 2-D and 3-D spaces, on sets of acoustic ranging-based distance measurements recorded by deployed sensor networks. The experimental evaluation indicates that localization of only a few centimeters is consistently achieved when the average and median dis...
