An analytical method for centroid computing and its application in wireless localization

Xue Jun Li
2013 2013 19th IEEE International Conference on Networks (ICON)  
Furthermore, based on the analytical solution of centroid computing, we propose a cell-based localization technique, namely Centroid Based Location (CBL) for wireless sensor networks.  ...  CBL works by finding the centroid of intersection of any two circles. In particular, we study the effect of power level mismatch among anchors.  ...  First, we managed to compute the centroid of the overlapping area of any two circles (regardless of their respective radii) and proposed a centroid based localization (CBL) algorithm similar to the one  ...

Localization for emergency sensor networks

H. Sanson, M. Mitsuji
2005 The 7th International Conference on Advanced Communication Technology, 2005, ICACT 2005.  
We find that common assumptions in current location schemes don't apply in a disaster scenario and the expected behavior of the localization methods changes.  ...  Unfortunately, existing systems often provide minimal communication infrastructure for suplying information about the nature or the extend of an emergency or disaster area.  ...  More advanced broadcasting mechanisms based on topology may further reduce the communication costs of the localization algorithms without affecting the location estimation or coverage of the localization  ...

Novel range-free immune to radio range difference (IRRD) geo-localization algorithm in wireless networks

Samuel Asferaw Demilew, Dejene Ejigu, Georges Da-Costa, Jean-Marc Pierson
2015 AFRICON 2015  
The algorithm does not require the traditional assumption of anchor (location aware) nodes that have the same communication range as it works with anchor nodes having homogeneous and/or heterogeneous communication  ...  The algorithm works in two steps: in the first step, the True Intersection Points (TIPs) forming the vertices of the smallest communication overlap polygon (SCOP) of the anchor nodes are found.  ...  There are various follow-up studies on DV-Hop technique [12] but our interest is on the second type of technique. A second type of range-free localization, local methods, is the focus of this work.  ...
