The Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) and the Link Quality Indicator (LQI) are the metrics that are commonly available in Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) sensor hardware. The former has been widely regarded as the main source for distance estimation and node localization. However, experimentally RSSI has been shown to behave in an inconsistent manner, even in ideal scenarios, and serve at best as bounds for distances. The latter is effectively a measure of chip error rate, and can be used to identify higher quality transmissions, and the combination RSSI/LQI can be expected to make more precise estimates with the tradeoff of increased delay and estimation cost.
