A Distributed Precision Based Localization Algorithm for Ad-Hoc Networks
In this paper we introduce a new distributed algorithm for location discovery. It can be used in wireless ad-hoc sensor networks that are equipped with means of measuring the distances between the nodes (like the intensity of the received signal strength). The algorithm takes the reliability of measurements into account during calculation of the nodes positions. Simulation results are presented, showing the algorithms performance in relation to its accuracy, communication and calculation costs. The simulation results of our approach yield 2 to 4 times better results in position accuracy than other systems described previously. This level of performance can be reached using only few broadcast messages with small and constant size, for each node in the network.
