Sensor Network Navigation Without Locations

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors propose a pervasive usage of the sensor network infrastructure as a cyber-physical system for navigating internal users in locations of potential danger. The proposed application differs from previous work in that they typically treat the sensor network as a media of data acquisition while in the navigation application, in-situ interactions between users and sensors become ubiquitous. In addition, human safety and time factors are critical to the success of the objective. Without any pre-knowledge of user and sensor locations, the design of an effective and efficient navigation protocol faces non-trivial challenges.
