A Radio Signal Strength Based Localization Error Optimization Technique for Wireless Sensor Network

Sudha H. Thimmaiah, Mahadevan G


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is useful in collecting data from various sensor devices that are distributed over a network which is generally positioned in a stationary manner. Wireless sensor based communication system is an ever growing sector in the industry of communication. Wireless infrastructure is a network that enables correspondence between various devices associated through an infrastructure protocol. Finding the position or location of sensor node (Localization) is an important factor in sensor network for proving efficient service to end user. The existing technique proposed so for adopt AOA (Angle of Arrival), TOA (Time of Arrival) etc… suffers in estimating the likelihood of localization error and induces high cost of deployment. To cater this in this work the author proposes a cost effective RSS (Received signal strength) based localization technique and also proposes an adaptive information estimation to reduce or approximate the localization error in wireless sensor network. The author compares our proposed localization model with existing protocol and analyse its efficiency.
