Localization of Sensor Nodes in a Wireless Sensor Network Using the NanoLOC TRX Transceiver

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A wireless sensor network consist of spatially distributed autonomous sensor nodes for data acquisition. Accurate localization of sensor nodes is a strong requirement in a wide area of applications. This paper describes the localization of sensor nodes using range measurements and trilateration with the Extended Kalman Filter. The commercially available nanoLOC sensor network is utilized for range measurements. Experimental results show, that a localization accuracy better than 0.5m can be achieved in most cases.
