3 Introduction Wireless Sensor Network (WSN):  Random deployment of large number of tiny devices  Communication via radio frequencies  Sense parameters of environment Applications  Forest fire  Volcanic activity  Precision farming  Flood protection Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 3 Location of sensed information  important parameter in WSNs

4 Introduction – Localization Example 4 Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs Parameters:  m … Number of beacons  n … Number of unknowns  N=m+n … Total number of nodes Beacon Unknown Error ellipse

5 Goal of this Work Investigate potential impact and applicability of adapting and scaling localization accuracy to:  Activity  Importance  Energy level  Other parameters (context) Obey fundamental trade-off between: accuracy complexity Benefits:  Decreased communication  Prolonged lifetime of WSN Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 5

6 Localization in WSN Possible approaches  Lateration (typically used)  Angulation  Proximity Lateration  Use received signal strength (RSS) to estimate distances : RSS ~ 1/d²  Idea: – Estimate distances to beacons – Solve non-linear system of equations Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs Beacon Unknown

7 Localization in WSN Measurements of RSS are disturbed:  Interference  Noise How accurate can estimates of position be?  Cramer-Rao-Lower-Bound (CRLB) poses lower bound on variance of any unbiased estimator Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 7 …Path loss coefficient … standard deviation of RSS measurements …true parameter …estimated parameter Distance Geometry

8 Cramer-Rao-Lower-Bound Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 8 CRLB Error model of RSS measurements Number of beacons Geometry Lower bound on variance of position error

9 Cramer-Rao-Lower-Bound Example  1 dimension  True position at x=0  Disturbed position estimates  Probability density of position estimates  Standard deviation or root mean square error more intuitive than variance Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 9

10 Cramer-Rao-Lower-Bound – An Example 2 beacons, 1 unknown Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 10 Beacon Unknown

11 Complexity of Localization Complexity depends on:  Dimensionality (2D/3D)  Number of Beacons  Number of nodes with unknown position Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 11

12 Energy Consumption and Localization Communication  Two-way communication beacon unknown  Main contribution to total energy consumption Calculation  Simplest case: Energy spend ~ number of beacons Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 12 Energy  Number of beacons 

13 Reducing Complexity of Localization in WSNs How to reduce Complexity?  Constrain number of beacons used  Idea: Select those beacons first that contribute most to localization accuracy! Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 13

14 Related Work Impact of geometry not considered No local rule which prevents insignificant beacons from broadcasting their position Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 14 Beacon Placement Weighting range measurements Simulate localization error Variance/Distance [LZZ06, CPI06, BRT06] Variance/Distance [LZZ06, CPI06, BRT06] Detect outliers [OLT04, PCB00] Detect outliers [OLT04, PCB00] Choose nearest k beacons [CTL05] Choose nearest k beacons [CTL05]

15 Characterizing Potential Benefits Simulations using Matlab Aim:  Proof of Concept  Determine how likely it is that constraining the number of beacons is possible without increasing CRLB significantly Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 15

16 Characterizing Potential Benefits Simulation setup:  Random deployment of m beacons and 1 unknown Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 16  For every deployment calculate: – – k=m: consider all beacons – k

17 Characterizing Potential Benefits Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 17 Potential of approach  m=13 beacons  Event: “CRLB ok “  (equals 5% increase) Potentially highest savings in terms of energy and communication effort

18 Conclusion / Outlook Preliminary study based on CRLB  Considers strong impact of geometry on localization accuracy Selection of subsets of beacons for localization is feasible in terms of:  Prolonging lifetime of sensor network  Decreasing communication Outlook  Determine/investigate local rules for selecting subset of beacons Using CRLB to Reduce Complexity of Localization in WSNs 18
