3 Why Wireless Sensors Networks? WSNs involve the use of numerous small, wireless sensors that are inexpensive and easily deployed. WSNs involve the use of numerous small, wireless sensors that are inexpensive and easily deployed. Various applications Various applications – Habitat monitoring (forest fire detection, water pollutants) (forest fire detection, water pollutants) – Military surveillance (enemy tracking, sniper detection) (enemy tracking, sniper detection) – Medical care (smart hospitals, patient monitoring) (smart hospitals, patient monitoring) Introduces Design Challenges Introduces Design Challenges – Limited storage capacity, limited energy supply, limited communication bandwidth – All designs must take each into consideration.

4 WSN Research Areas Tracking Tracking – Detection and tracking in a sensor network Routing Routing – Routing protocols of the sensor network. Localization Localization – Location information of sensor nodes.

5 Localization Solution #1: Marking the location of each node as deployed Solution #1: Marking the location of each node as deployed – Impractical for large number of nodes, limited mobility Solution #2: GPS capabilities on all nodes Solution #2: GPS capabilities on all nodes – Expensive and more energy consumption Solution #3: Anchor Nodes Solution #3: Anchor Nodes – Have a small subset of nodes have GPS. Sensors use them to find relative location. Using Ranged-Based and Ranged-Free schemes Using Ranged-Based and Ranged-Free schemes

6 Range-Based Localization Distance estimation – – Time of Arrival (TOA) measure signal propagation time to obtain range information – – Angel of Arrival (AOA) estimate and map relative angles between anchors – – Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) use theoretical or empirical model to translate signal strength into distance (RADAR, SpotOn) Distance estimation done by Most methods require complex hardware.

7 Ranged-Free Localization Never tries to estimate the absolute point-to-point distance. Never tries to estimate the absolute point-to-point distance. Some available solutions: Some available solutions: – – Centroid Algorithm After receiving location information of several anchors node, use centroid formula to estimate its location – – DV-HOP Anchor node flood their location and hop count throughout the network. Nodes calculate their position based on the received anchor location, hop count and average-distance per hop. – – Ring Overlapping based on Comparison of Received Signal Strength Indicator (ROCRSSI) Reduces location of sensor to a ring of finite definite thickness by comparing RSSI values.

8 Summary of ROCRSSI Ring Overlapping based on Comparison of Received Signal Strength Indicator Basic Procedure 1. 1.Reduces location of sensor to a rings of finite definite thickness Adds rings to grid. (increments counter in these positions) Takes region of grid with highest values Center of gravity of region = sensor location. All the sensor needs – –a list of its neighboring anchors and relative RSSI, and, for each anchor in that list, a list of their neighboring anchors and relative RSSI. Does not require sensor nodes to send out control messages

11 Simulation Timeline 1. All anchors send a broadcast message with its location. 2. Other anchors upon receiving broadcast messages, store the locations and RSSI of the message in a list of their neighboring anchors. 3. After a predetermined interval of time, each anchor then broadcast its location, and its list of neighbors and RSSIs. 4. This broadcast is heard from sensor nodes, received, and used to compute its location.

Lack of improvement to estimation accuracy in many cases. –lack of cases where the information negative rings gave actually came into use –Usually the negative rings only reinforced information that the original ROCRSSI algorithm already knew. Substantial Difference in Unattractive Topologies Substantial Difference in Unattractive Topologies –Where the negative rings actually made a substantial difference was when anchors were not placed along the perimeter. –This caused a large amount of negative rings to be produced, giving the S-ROCRSSI algorithm more information and a better location estimate.
