Sequential Monte Carlo for Simultaneous Passive Device-Free Tracking and Sensor Localization Using Received Signal Strength Measurements

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents and evaluates a method for simultaneously tracking a target while localizing the sensor nodes of a passive device-free tracking system. The system uses Received Signal Strength (RSS) measurements taken on the links connecting many nodes in a wireless sensor network, with nodes deployed such that the links overlap across the region. A target moving through the region attenuates links intersecting or nearby its path. At the same time, RSS measurements provide information about the relative locations of sensor nodes.
