**Introduction here, It is Location discovery for nodes**

Given a network of sensor nodes where a few nodes know their location how do we calculate the location of the nodes? Known Location Unknown Location SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

**Introduction Why need this kind of localization? Motivation**

Support Location Aware Applications Track Objects Report event origins Evaluate network coverage Assist with routing, GF Support for upper level protocols. GPS is not practical Not work Indoors or if blocked from the GPS satellites Spends the battery life of the node Issue of the production cost factor of GPS Increase the size of sensor nodes SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

**Introduction Two phases**

Location discovery approaches consist of two phases : Ranging phase, Estimation phase Ranging phase (distance estimation) Each node estimate its distance from its neighbors Estimation phase (distance combining) Nodes use ranging information and beacon node locations to estimate their positions SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

**AHLoS Atomic Multilateration**

Requirement Atomic multilateration can take place if the unknown node is within one hop distance from at least three beacon nodes. The node may also estimate the ultrasound propagation speed if four or more beacons are available Topology for atomic multilateration 1 d1x X X’ d2x 2 d3x 3 Three lined beacons, location X is not unique 1 d1x X X’ d2x 2 Two beacons, location X is not unique 1 X d1x d2x 2 3 d3x Three beacons, location X is unique 1 d1x X X’ One beacon, location X is not unique SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

What we know: 1. The location of Three or more beacons N1,N2,N3, … … 2. Ti0, the time from beacon Ni to unknown node 0 for ultrasound propagation What we want to get: The location of the unknown node 0 How to get the location: Make the difference between the measured distance and estimated Euclidean distance to be as small as possible. Method used: The minimum mean square estimate (MMSE), let F to be as small as possible (Equation 3) (Equation 4) SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

20
**AHLoS Incorrectness 1 in Atomic Multilateration**

The goal is let F(X0,Y0,S) in equation 4 to be as small as possible (Equation 4) We should have (Equation 40) Here, equation 5 is generated by setting = 0 So it has (Equation 5) If equations 5 have solutions, they are solutions to equation 4. BUT equations 5 may not have solutions, because Ti0 is a measured value, equations 5 can not be guaranteed to have solutions on the measured values Ti0.

31
**AHLoS Conclusion in Atomic Multilateration**

With the unknown speed of ultrasound pulse or other efficient constraints, generally, it is impossible to get a unique location of one unknown node only depending 3 un-lined beacons Other constraints, such as a roughly scope of ultrasound speed, angle, etc, must be added to make the solution determined. Or 4 un-lines beacons determine one unknown node’s location The computation process on the paper is not robust. In the algorithms later, we assume the speed of ultrasound is known SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

Precision (for repeated position determinations, how often is a given accuracy achieved?) Costs, energy consumption, … SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

45
**Main approaches (information sources)**

Proximity Exploit finite range of wireless communication E.g.: easy to determine location in a room with infrared room number announcements (Tri-/Multi-)lateration and angulation Use distance or angle estimates, simple geometry to compute position estimates Scene analysis Radio environment has characteristic “signatures” Can be measured beforehand, stored, compared with current situation SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

**Estimating distances – other means**

Time of arrival (ToA) Use time of transmission, propagation speed, time of arrival to compute distance Problem: Exact time synchronization Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA) Use two different signals with different propagation speeds Example: ultrasound and radio signal Propagation time of radio negligible compared to ultrasound Compute difference between arrival times to compute distance Problem: Calibration, expensive/energy-intensive hardware SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

Trilateration Assuming distances to three points with known location are exactly given Solve system of equations (Pythagoras!) (xi,yi) : coordinates of anchor point i, ri distance to anchor i (xu, yu) : unknown coordinates of node Subtracting eq. 3 from 1 & 2: Rearranging terms gives a linear equation in (xu, yu)!

**Trilateration as matrix equation**

**Minimize mean square error**

Look at square of the of Euclidean norm expression (note that for all vectors v) Look at derivative with respect to x, set it equal to 0: Normal equation Has unique solution (if A has full rank), which gives desired minimal mean square error Essentially similar for angulation as well SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

**Multihop range estimation**

How to estimate range to a node to which no direct radio communication exists? No RSSI, TDoA, … But: Multihop communication is possible Idea 1: Count number of hops, assume length of one hop is known (DV-Hop) Start by counting hops between anchors, divide known distance Idea 2: If range estimates between neighbors exist, use them to improve total length of route estimation in previous method (DV-Distance) SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

57
**Iterative multilateration**

Assume some nodes can hear at least three anchors (to perform triangulation), but not all Idea: let more and more nodes compute position estimates, spread position knowledge in the network Problem: Errors accumulate SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning

58
**Probabilistic position description**

Similar idea to previous one, but accept problem that position of nodes is only probabilistically known Represent this probability explicitly, use it to compute probabilities for further nodes SS 05 Ad hoc & sensor networs - Ch 9: Localization & positioning
