Abstract : This work provides a design method to achieve a specified probability of resolution for two target localization via a wireless network of proximity sensors. Proximity sensors simply report a single binary value indicating whether or not a target is near. The design provides the density and threshold settings to achieve the given probability of resolution for targets separated by a specified distance. Simulations are included that demonstrate that at the designed sensor density and threshold values, the actual percentage of targets resolved achieves the desirable level of resolution for moderate to large target separations.
