Problem Synopsis Node T is a wireless transmitter with unknown Tx power P, and unknown location (x,y) Nodes {m 1,…, m N } are monitors that measure received power {p i } Goal – given {p i } and {(x i,y i )} (monitor locations), estimate unknown P (and also unknown location (x,y)) m2m2 P (x,y) m3m3 mNmN p N (x N,y N ) p 3 (x 3,y 3 ) p 2 (x 2,y 2 ) p 1 (x 1,y 1 ) m1m1 T

Problem Synopsis Sensor Networks – Event detection – {m 1,…, m N } are sensors, and T is the source point of an event – Goal – detect important events, eg: bomb explosion, based on measured power Wireless Ad-hoc Networks – physical layer monitoring – {m 1,…, m N } monitor a wireless network – Goal – detect maximum transmit power violation; i.e. detect misbehaving/mis- configured nodes, signal jamming m2m2 P (x,y) m3m3 mNmN p N (x N,y N ) p 3 (x 3,y 3 ) p 2 (x 2,y 2 ) p 1 (x 1,y 1 ) m1m1 T Applications Blind estimation – no prior knowledge (statistical or otherwise) of the location or transmission power of T

Power Propagation model Lognormal fading P i = received power at monitor i d i = distance between the transmitter and monitor i α = attenuation factor, (α > 1) k = normalizing constant H i = lognormal random variable W i – unknown to the monitor – represents the aggregated effect of randomness in the environment; eg: multi-path fading didi PiPi T mimi P

9
Deterministic Case Multiple monitor scenario With multiple monitors – diversity in measurements System of equations with unknowns (x,y,P) We should be able to solve these equations to obtain exact P ? Answer: Yes and No !!

10
Deterministic Case 1 2 (x r, y r ) d r,1 d r,2 T (x, y) 3 4 d1d1 d2d2 Theorem: There is a unique solution (P*, x*, y*) except when the monitors are placed on an arc of a circle or a straight line that does not pass through the actual transmitter location. Proof: A location (x, y) is a solution if and only if it satisfies d 1 /d 2 =c 1, …, d N-1 /d N = c N-1 The actual location (x r, y r ) is one solution; thus d r,1 /d r,2 =c 1, …, d r,N-1 /d r,N = c N-1 There exists another solution at (x, y) if and only if, d r,1 /d r,2 = d 1 /d 2, …; equivalently, T

11
Deterministic Case 1 2 (x r, y r ) d r,1 d r,2 T (x, y) 3 4 d1d1 d2d2 Observation: Without transmit power information, and if monitors lie on an arc of a circle, even with infinite monitors and no fading, the transmission power (and transmitter location) cannot be uniquely determined. T Theorem: There is a unique solution (P*, x*, y*) except when the monitors are placed on an arc of a circle or a straight line that does not pass through the actual transmitter location.

Stochastic Case m1m1 P (x,y) m2m2 mNmN p N (x N,y N ) p 2 (x 2,y 2 ) p 1 (x 1,y 1 ) Let z i = ln(p i ), Let Z = ln(P), and ML estimate (Z*,x*,y*) is the value that maximizes the joint probability density function The joint probability density function Maximum Likelihood Estimate T Power attenuation model

16
Stochastic Case Theorem: The ML estimate for N monitor case is given as, (x*,y*) is the solution to the minimization above, where the objective function is sample variance of {ln(p i d i α )} distance between some location (x,y) and monitor i distance between estimated Tx. location (x*,y*) and monitor i P* is proportional to the geometric mean of {p i (d* i ) α }

17
Stochastic Case What happens when N increases ? more number of measurements of received power increase in the spatial diversity of measurements Does the transmission power estimate improve ? Answer: Yes !! ; Estimator is asymptotically optimal

18
Stochastic Case Asymptotic optimality as N increases Random Monitor Placement N monitors placed i.i.d. randomly in a bounded region Г Each monitor makes an independent measurement of the received power Random placement is such that it is not a distribution over an arc of a circle Let P N * be the estimated transmit power using the results presented earlier Theorem: As N increases the estimated transmit power converges to the actual power P almost surely,

19
Numerical Results Synthetic data set –N = 2 to 20 monitors placed uniformly at random in a disk of radius R = 40. –Received power is generated by i.i.d. lognormal fading model for each monitor. –Performance measured: averaged over estimation for 1000 transmitter locations. Empirical data set –Sensor network measurement data by N. Patwari. –Total 44 wireless devices; each device transmits at -37.47 dBm; received powers are measured between all pairs of devices –The data is statistically shown to fit well to the lognormal fading model = 2.3, and dB = 3.92. –Randomly chosen N=3,4,…,10 monitors out of 44 devices.
