Abstract:

Localization of mobile sensors such as service robots in tactical mobile sensor networks is important because the location of mobile sensors is a critical input to many higher-level tasks, such as intruder detection, tracking, monitoring and geometric based protection. In this years work, we focused on the following research tasks 1 we developed and deployed a prototype of the localization system in the ECE Dept. at Stevens for both 802.11 WiFi networks as well as 802.15.4 ZigBee networks to localize the mobile sensor nodes 2 we investigated the performance of wireless localization using signal strength on commodity hardware embedded in mobile robots.
